DETROIT – December 12, 2013 – The Michigan Chronicle is pleased to announce the launch of its new website www.MichiganChronicle.com. The new site is a part of the official launch of the RTM Digital Network, the growing conglomerate of African American news and information websites established by the newspaper’s parent company, Real Times Media (RTM)—a multimedia company focused on urban marketing, media and entertainment.
The launch of the Network is one of the first milestones resulting from a partnership RTM developed with Interactive One Studios (iOne Studios), a division of Radio One, which assists external brands with developing highly profitable digital businesses through world-class sales, platform, content and distribution services.
“Partnering with Interactive One Studios presents a tremendous opportunity for the Real Times Media digital platform,” said Hiram E. Jackson, CEO, Real Times Media. “For the past few years our company has had a laser focus on re-positioning our brands into multi-media platforms with an emphasis on digital content, special events and marketing services. We’ve been able to make significant headway on our own; however, this partnership with Interactive One will certainly help us to reach new levels of success.”
In addition to www.MichiganChronicle.com, the RTM Digital Network includes the websites of the Atlanta Daily World (www.AtlantaDailyWorld.com), Chicago Defender (www.ChicagoDefender.com), the New Pittsburgh Courier (www.NewPittsburghCourier.com) and the independently-owned African American outlet Memphis Tri-State Defender (www.TSDMemphis.com) The Network benefits the participating brands through increased audience reach and world-class advertising.
