EDGE Media Network Launches Seattle Gay News and Entertainment Portal

For Immediate Release Feb 25, 2011

Seattle, WA - EDGE Media Network, in partnership with OUTview online, today announced the official launch of EDGEseattle.com, a new online destination with news and entertainment serving Seattle’s Gay, Lesbian, Bisexual and Transgender community.

EDGEseattle.com delivers eight major channels of information to its readers, including daily news, arts & entertainment, business & finance, technology, health & fitness, style, weather and travel. Additional channels provide local coverage of nightlife, shopping, plus a local business directory and calendar of events.

The site joins a family of market-leading online sites currently serving readers in Boston, New York, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Philadelphia, Fort Lauderdale, Miami, Dallas, Chicago, Las Vegas, Fire Island, Providence and Provincetown.

"We’re thrilled to add the Pacific Northwest to our network," said EDGE Publisher David Foucher. "Not only is it a progressive US city for many reasons, but it also represents a vibrant gay and lesbian community with whom we can work to extend our national community - connecting individuals and businesses with news, entertainment and valuable local information."

OUTview, an award-winning e-zone has served the Seattle community for many years online, has partnered with EDGE to provide a variety of local stories each week with a unique flair and an "edge."

"Seattle is home to one of the nation’s most active GLBT communities," said Michael Scott, publisher of OUTview. "We’re excited by the opportunity to bring our readers to an even larger audience as a partner with EDGE."

The new local city site is available at http://www.EDGEseattle.com.
