Clevver Media Launches Seventh YouTube Channel ClevverNews

Clevver Media is on fire.

After joining the billion views club last summer, Clevver snagged three YouTube Original Channels—the most of any producer—and launched the first YouTube Original Channel in Spanish. Clevver took advantage of YouTube’s $100 million premium content initiative launched last fall, and has been going gangbusters adding new channels ClevverTeVe, ClevverStyle, and now, ClevverNews.

ClevverNews is an up-to–the-minute news source for all of the latest in entertainment and celebrity gossip, and is produced by entertainment and broadcast journalists Deidre Behar of and Katie Krause of Hollywire.

“We are very excited to kick off the New Year with the launch of our seventh YouTube channel,” said Michael Palmer, Co-Founder of Clevver Media. “We are committed to offering more celebrities, more entertainment and more up-to-the-minute news for information-hungry audiences.”

YouTube’s Original Programming Manager Terry Hurlburt added, “Building off their success-to-date on YouTube, Clevver Media’s ClevverNews channel will be a welcome addition to the YouTube line-up for those looking to keep their fingers on the pulse of entertainment and Hollywood.”

The channel kicks off with an exclusive interview with American Idol’s Kris Allen. The show plans on offering continued coverage of the Oscar nominations with red carpet interviews on the big day.

Two programs debuted with the channel:

  • Clevver Daily News, an up-to-the-minute entertainment news show covering all the latest in Hollywood and celebrity headlines
  • Remote Access, covering all the latest television buzz from casting news to celebrity guest stars, spoilers, previews and recaps
