Ever since we sold Newschoolers, we have been waiting for the opportunity to significantly grow our reach. Through many twists and turns since that fateful day in 2007, we've finally landed at The Enthusiast Network - which holds such amazing brands as Powder Magazine, Transworld Snowboarding and Snowboarder magazine. Since ending up here, the question has always remained - where do we go now?
Its with the utmost excitement and enthusiasm that today I get to announce the single most incredible news that we have put out in years....
Newschoolers has officially purchased Level 1 Productions.
You read it right - Josh Berman and his incredible team will be joining us at the Montreal headquarters to truly start a new chapter in ski media.
"I'm really excited about taking this next step and bringing Level 1 under the Newschoolers.com unbrella. We've always shared such a similar fan base and audience - it just makes perfect sense to put it all together and combine our strengths and resources! Not only will NS and Level 1 together have the biggest reach and following of any company in snow sports, but we'll be able to produce the media that speaks to them!"
Our teams couldn't be more excited to join forces and take on the new challenges that Media faces as print declines and a multitude of new places to get content crop up for the everyday skier. We'll keep this release short, as our combined teams will be launching a full Q&A session to discuss what this means for you on Monday, April 6th.
Thanks for being you NS - and welcome our Level 1 brethren to the mix!
