Salem Purchases Twitchy.com From Michelle Malkin
In its continuing efforts to expand digital offerings to listeners, Salem Communications has purchased the Twitter curation site, Twitchy.com -- founded by author, blogger, and syndicated columnist Michelle Malkin. The Twitchy team monitors news and social media trends to report "who said what" in U.S. politics, global news, entertainment, media, and breaking news 24/7.
Twitchy.com, combined with Townhall.com and HotAir.com, creates the largest social media-driven conservative platform on the Web, with nearly 10 million unique readers and over 100 million pageviews each month.
Jonathan Garthwaite, VP & General Manager of Townhall/HotAir, commenting on the acquisition said, "Since its inception almost two years ago, Twitchy has fast become a leader in online news reporting. They have harnessed the power of social media to create a real-time newswire for the modern, interconnected world. With the addition of Twitchy to our growing network of news and political websites, there is no better collection of conservative news and opinion on the Web."
