Management Changes at Yardbarker
Effective last month, Jack Kloster is assuming duties as Yardbarker’s new General Manager. Jack was one of the co-founders of Yardbarker, and has been a part of the core team running the business both before and since the FOX Sports acquisition. As part of the transition, Pete Vlastelica is stepping down as GM of the business, and is taking a new role as Senior VP of Product Strategy for FOX Sports Digital. We think this new role for Pete represents both a validation of the success of Yardbarker and an opportunity for Yardbarker bloggers to be better represented within the FOX Sports organization. If you have questions for either Jack or Pete, they can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
Summer Olympics Content
As we head into the summer months, Yardbarker is going to begin featuring content from the 2012 Summer Olympic Games in London on our Medal Detector blog:
We will also be featuring Olympics coverage on the Yardbarker homepage and throughout the network in conjunction with our partners at FOX Sports and MSN. If you have any content related to the Games, please let us know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
There will be multiple premium campaigns running through several categories of the YBN in May. Campaigns continuing from last month include Force Factor, Anheuser Busch, Subway, New Era, and Burger King. We also have new campaigns from John Deere, DiGiornio, Leinenkugel’s, Miller and Coors Light, and TicketsNow. As always, feel free to email email@example.com with any questions.
Payment for February should have been sent during the last week of April. If you haven’t provided payment information, or if you believe you should have been paid but have not yet received payment, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
