Breaking TWoP news

There are enough former TWoPers on my friends list to justify posting this, I think:

A Special Message From Bravo Media

Almost one year ago, Bravo Media proudly announced that it had acquired Television Without Pity, praising it as witty, smart, sardonic, and no-holds-barred. Under the editorial guidance of co-founders Tara Ariano, Sarah D. Bunting, and David T. Cole, the site reached record heights in traffic over the past year as it launched new areas featuring blogs, photos, games, and original video, all the while still providing fans with the best show recaps and forums on the Web. It's no wonder that it topped EW's list of 2007's best TV web sites.

But now, after a decade of amazing work (stretching back to, their first project together), the site's founders have decided to pursue dreams and ambitions that will take them beyond TWoP. We will miss their passion, their voice, and their commitment, and we thank them for creating and nurturing a site that will continue to fulfill its mission to be the most opinionated destination for people who love to hate (and hate to love) television.

A Note From The Founders:

It is with no small amount of sadness that we make this announcement, it is: the TWoP founders are leaving the site. Our last day will be March 11, 2008.

We really can't express how much we've enjoyed working here with, and for, all of you over the years, and how much we've always appreciated your encouragement and support. Television Without Pity is what it is because of its fantastic users, and you guys kept us going through some tough times (emotionally as well as fiscally). You've made the job fun -- and crazy, but, you know, in a fun way.

Television Without Pity is also what it is because of its awesome staff, so even though the three of us are moving on, that doesn't mean TWoP will stop offering some of the best content and commentary on the internet...and you won't want to miss any of it. But we'll miss you. Thanks again for everything.
