Erick Erickson’s Web Channel, The Resurgent, joins Maven Coalition of diverse, independent media

SEATTLE -- Erick Erickson’s well-known podcast and blog of thought-provoking articles highlighting conservative perspectives on American and global political issues is now amplifying its voice via Maven (MVEN), the new digital media network.

“Maven is a mobile-first platform that provides technical tools, distribution and sponsorship for independent publishers, so they can focus on creating great content and serving their audience instead of worrying about bells, whistles, and web gremlins,” said Erick Erickson, founder of The Resurgent. “By moving to Maven, The Resurgent will not only reach conservative grassroots activists, but it’s an opportunity to provide new ideas to mainstream and even left-of-center audiences.”

The Resurgent brings an alternative and often controversial perspective to major news stories and events, most notably through Erickson’s podcast, “The Erick Erickson Show,” and his popular radio show in the Atlanta area.

“Erickson brings a passionate audience that will spark intriguing dialogues,” said Maven Founder and CEO James Heckman. “Erick’s impressive track record will make him a great addition to Maven’s coalition. We look forward to seeing the debates that will rise from his podcasts and articles, and that’s what Maven really brings to The Resurgent.”

Dozens of award-winning journalists, best-selling authors, top analysts, important causes and foundations are bringing their organizations to Maven’s coalition of elite content channels. After migrating to the Maven platform, they are seeing significant consumer engagement uplift -- a 71% increase within 30 days.

Maven is an expert-driven, group media network, whose innovative platform serves, by invitation-only, a coalition of professional, independent channel partners. By providing broader distribution, greater community engagement and efficient advertising and membership programs, Maven enables partners to focus on the key drivers of their business: creating, informing, sharing, discovering, leading and interacting with the communities and constituencies they serve.

Based in Seattle, Maven is publicly traded under the ticker symbol MVEN. The executive team includes digital media pioneers James Heckman and Josh Jacobs and technology innovators Bill Sornsin and Ben Joldersma. For more insight, head to themaven.net.
