ANTHEM MEDIA ANNOUNCES LAUNCH OF DAILYROTO.COM
NEW DAILY FANTASY SPORTS SITE WILL OFFER PODCASTS, FORUMS, PREMIUM CONTENT, AND VIDEO ELEMENTS
March 10, 2015 (New York, NY) – Anthem Media Group, Inc., announced today the launch of DailyRoto.com, the most comprehensive and far-reaching daily fantasy sports (“DFS”) site in the $1.7 billion fantasy sports industry.
DailyRoto.com features exclusive content from the daily fantasy industry’s top talent, led by Drew Dinkmeyer, Michael Leone, and Adam Hummell. Dinkmeyer won DraftKings.com’s Millionaire Maker event this past December, and Dinkmeyer and Leone’s analysis and advice package at RotoExperts.com – from which DailyRoto.com sprung – produced two additional Millionaire Maker winners. Dinkmeyer, Leone, Hummell, and the RotoExperts.com staff were nominated for nine industry awards in 2014, and have over 50 nominations in the last seven years. In addition to the launch, DailyRoto.com was hand-selected by ESPN’s Matthew Berry as one of six sites included on RotoPassBaseball.com, a fantasy sports portal Berry assembled, which features the best information and analysis in the industry.
DailyRoto.com will supplement Dinkmeyer and Leone’s premium package with free daily podcasts, video analysis from the FNTSY Sports Network, and several articles per day powered by RotoExperts.com and a stable of DailyRoto.com contributors. “By pairing high quality premium content with a passionate DFS community,” Leone, the site’s Managing Editor, explained, “the sky is the limit for what we can provide daily fantasy sports players – from teaching tools to a passionate and interactive forum and the ability to interact with our users on many different levels.”
An integral part of DailyRoto.com will be its forums, built by LuDawgs.com founder Adam Hummell. LuDawgs was a daily fantasy sports community portal purchased by Anthem Media in January. Hummell will oversee the fostering of a daily fantasy community and expand the work he did at LuDawgs. The forum and message boards are free to access for all registered users of DailyRoto.com. As part of the official launch, Hummell will be overseeing daily contests and giveaways that will appear in message board threads, on social media, and hidden in some of the articles.
Anthem Media Chief Strategy Officer Louis M. Maione hailed the launch as a further commitment of the company to the evolving – and quickly-growing — world of daily fantasy sports. “We want to be the destination for daily fantasy veterans as well as newcomers,” Maione says. “Encouraging a sense of community and adding exhaustively-researched multi-media content for players of all levels – from beginner to expert – will help educate the world on the wide array of skill-based legal daily fantasy sports games. I’m extremely excited to see DailyRoto.com continue the winning tradition of RotoExperts.com.”
