PokerNews.com Announces Renewal of Media Pact with BLUFF for Reporting of World Series of Poker Events
February 02, 2008 (PRLEAP.COM) Business NewsPokerNews (http://www.pokernews.com/) today announced the renewal of their media pact with BLUFF Media for continuing ‘live reporting’ of World Series of Poker events, including this summer’s preeminent poker world get-together, the World Series of Poker at the Rio All Suite Hotel and Casino in Las Vegas. The agreement also includes continuing coverage of WSOP Circuit events, all in support of BLUFF’s agreement with Harrah’s and the WSOP as its official digital publisher and radio partner. That agreement also includes content for worldseriesofpoker.com and broadband and streaming services in addition to more traditional content.
Under terms of the extended agreement, PokerNews expects to continue to provide exclusive, top-level ‘live’ reporting from the floor of these major events, including live chip counts and player status reports, exclusive video interviews and photos straight from the scene and hundreds of timely recaps for the latest WSOP events.
According to John Caldwell, PokerNews.com’s Editor-in-Chief, “PokerNews looks forward to continuing to expand and improve upon our coverage of the World Series of Poker. In addition to dedicated ‘live’ bloggers reporting the very latest news live from the tournament floor, our video interviews from WSOP venues across America and in London have been a resounding success. For a lot of the world’s poker fans it’s one of the very few ways they can actually feel as though they’re a part of the WSOP scene and share in the buzz and excitement that always marks a World Series of Poker event.”
BLUFF Media’s Co-President, Eddy Kleid, also welcomed PokerNews’ continuing presence at WSOP venues. Said Mr. Kleid, “We are excited about continuing our partnership with PokerNews.com and their ongoing commitment to excellence in reporting from WSOP events.
