Bleacher Report To Begin Paying Limited Number Of Contributors
Published January 13, 2011
Bleacher Report has created a new system in which it will begin compensating a "limited" number of select writers contributing to the site. Both new and existing writers selected will be paid, with criteria for selection including quality and coverage of top U.S. sports and international teams. The move extends an ongoing push to improve the content quality and editorial standards on Bleacher Report, including the creation last year of a new editorial vetting system. The move follows last month's closing of a $10.5M round of venture capital funding led by new company investor Crosslink Capital.
