The Business of a Media Circus

How does a mixer for media people turns into a twenty-three million dollar company? Mix one part journalists with one part community, stir, and a Media Bistro will cook. Laurel Touby used this recipe to create mediabistro.com in 1997.  She then added features such as job listings, bulletin boards, classes, e-classes, media and a freelance marketplace. The site also includes news, events and "learn" emails, as well as media industry blogs. More than 600,000 media professionals have registered for various mediabistro.com services around the world.
