Mr. Simmons, a former ESPN personality, will keep ownership of The Ringer, but Vox will sell advertising for the site and share in the revenue. The Ringer will leave its current home on Medium, where it has been hosted since it began in June 2016.
Interesting switch. People are jumping ship from Medium, a platform I used to be high on, but now, couldn’t imagine using. Bill Simmons going to Vox (SBNation, The Verge, Recode) is a great choice for him and his team. Vox’s technology will really fit The Ringer’s style of content.
