A few months before last year’s Digital Content Newfronts, Conde Nast began the push its magazine brands onto YouTube, with GQ and Glamour serving as the first two properties to gain channels of their own. One year later, Conde Nast has announced the “second phase” of its digital expansion, which will include several new channels and a new curation platform.
At its 2014 Newfronts presentation, Conde Nast announced three more YouTube hubs based off its magazines. A Bon Appétit channel will join existing food destinations like Epicurious, The New Yorker will bring its distinct brand of literary culture to YouTube, and Lucky will make offer a new slate of content for shopaholics.
Conde Nast also announced The Scene, a new curation website that will present digital videos from a diverse group of partners. At launch, The Scene will feature content from ABC News, Buzzfeed, Major League Soccer, Variety, Weather Channel Films, Jash, and all of Conde Nast’s existing channels.
“In just one year, CNÉ has set the industry standard for award-winning original video content that millions of influential millennials are watching and sharing,” said Conde Nast President Dawn Ostroff. “The addition of The Scene, which will feature content from all of our powerful branded channels and premium digital videos from leading traditional and digital media companies, will increase our reach to entirely new audiences.”
