Consequence Media Announces New Partnership With PopMatters
CHICAGO, IL FEBRUARY 22, 2017 – Consequence Media, LLC, an independent digital media company, is excited to announce a partnership with acclaimed international pop cultural publication PopMatters.
PopMatters (http://popmatters.com/) joins Consequence Media’s (http://consequencemedia.com/) digital properties that serve more than 6.5 million unique visitors monthly. Additionally, Consequence Media will leverage PopMatters’ passionate followers in establishing unique experiential activations.
“I have long thought that independent media companies needed to start teaming up with each other to be able to compete in an increasingly corporatized media landscape. We are impressed with Consequence Media’s growth and excellence in delivering compelling advertising solutions to clients. Naturally, we thought Consequence Media would be a perfect fit,” says Sarah Zupko, CEO and Publisher of PopMatters Media.
“Quality, high-brow writing is an increasing rarity in pop culture/music journalism, which is why we’re so excited to be partnering with PopMatters. For 17 years and counting, Sarah and her team have set a high standard for cultural criticism and analysis. Their coverage verticals focusing on books, video games, and the visual arts also fill a void missing from Consequence Media’s stable of publishers,” adds Rick Cantinella, president of Consequence Media.
