LOS ANGELES, CA / ACCESSWIRE / April 11, 2022 / Bloody Disgusting, the most popular media brand in horror, today announced that the Company has completed the transition to SHE Media as its media platform and advertising sales partner of record. The selection comes after a lengthy review and marks Bloody Disgusting's first change in representation in more than five years. SHE Media's programmatic and direct sales expertise will create opportunities to connect their extensive agency and brand relationships with Bloody Disgusting's audience of 25 million dedicated horror genre fans. This partnership cements SHE Media as the representative of choice to reach this valuable genre audience.
Bloody Disgusting was acquired by Cinedigm (NASDAQ:CIDM), a premier streaming technology and entertainment company super-serving enthusiast fan bases, in September 2021.
