“Over the course of the past 18 months we’ve built a platform that quickly garnered interest from millions of users searching for the best local news, information and entertainment,” said Ezra Kucharz, President, CBS Local Digital Media.
“Taking our vision one step further by working with a stable of contributors with expertise in their field will greatly enhance the audience’s experience. This is not just about telling you where to go and what to see – it’s providing ‘insider access’ to a city you may be visiting or have lived your whole life that you can’t get anywhere else,” said Kucharz.
"We look forward to working with CBS to enhance and expand its lifestyle editorial to better engage with valuable local audiences," said Leonard Brody, President of Clarity Digital, the parent company of Examiner.com.
"Examiner.com has the unique ability to mobilize our national base Examiners at a moment’s notice to produce the most engaging and relevant stories, articles and posts,” Brody added.
