Bleacher Report co-Founder & Chief Content Officer Dave Finocchio and Chief Technology Offer Sam Parnell will report to Hong, with Finocchio overseeing Bleacher Report's day-to-day functions. "Today begins the next chapter in what has been an amazing story and one that I am immensely proud to have been a part of for more than 3 years," Grey said in a memo sent to staff today.
Grey, a former exec at Fox Sports, Polaris Venture Partners and Yahoo, joined Bleacher Report in June '10 and played a significant role in the expansion of the site's content profile that included the recent hiring of noted basketball writer Howard Beck, the closing of a round of venture capital funding worth more than $22M and last summer's acquisition of the company by Turner for an estimated $175M. Grey's future plans have not been disclosed.
