The website’s content has been linked to some controversy involving ESPN. In August 2013, the company greenlit the website. The resulting merger will give ESPN a chance to capitalize on FiveThirtyEight’s success while continuing to expand its content. This includes expanding into science, tech, and sports news. ESPN will also continue to work with Silver to bring its sports coverage to other platforms. However, it is unclear exactly how ESPN will integrate the content from FiveThirtyEight into their sports coverage.
As one of the largest sports news websites, SB Nation has an aggressive expansion strategy. The company has 29 full-time employees and pays its 8xbet contributors a monthly stipend. Each regional site is run by a team-specific editor, which means it’s staffed by passionate fans and not by corporate executives. Many regional sports news sites resemble digital water coolers, with their zealous fans sharing their thoughts and opinions.
The SB Nation sports news website is owned by Vox Media and is a network of over 250 sports news sites. Its writers are paid on a contract basis, and the vast majority of them work outside of blogging. SB Nation’s flagship site covers national and local sports, including mixed martial arts. The site has a strong focus on personal team reports, and it’s easy to navigate. It’s also free of ads, which makes it a pleasant place to spend a few hours.
