NEW YORK--(Business Wire)--
Media veterans, Gareb Shamus, Peter Levin and Peter Guber today announced the
launch of GeekChicDaily (http://www.geekchicdaily.com), a free daily email
newsletter and website appealing to popular culture enthusiasts. As the geek
authority for bleeding edge bite-sized entertainment content delivered straight
into the inboxes of self-proclaimed geeks everywhere, GeekChicDaily represents
the shared passion of its three founders by capturing the enthusiasm of the fan
in a daily must-read shot-in-the-arm of editorial. Scott Gramling, former
editor-in-chief of FHM and Wizard, is GeekChicDaily`s editor-in-chief and is
responsible for the tone of the publication. 

GeekChicDaily is a free opt-in daily email newsletter and one-stop resource for
relevant and discerning content for video games, technology and applications,
comics, collectibles, gear and TV and film; including spotlights on creators and
luminaries, opinionated tips, picks and recommendations that are a reflection of
the GeekChic lifestyle and personality. 

Leveraging Gareb Shamus` Wizard Entertainment platform, GeekChicDaily is
entering the market with a loyal base of followers. Shamus is the founder and
publisher of Wizard Magazine, considered the most influential in the comic book,
toy and character-based genre. Shamus also publishes ToyFare and FunFare
magazines and owns and operates the Big Apple, Chicago, Philadelphia, Toronto
and Anaheim Comic Con festivals. 

"This is the same feeling I had 20 years ago when Wizard was launched as a
newsletter," states Shamus. "With Peter Levin, Peter Guber and Scott Gramling,
we have the best team in place to take our fans on a new adventure every single
day." 

"In the geek-o-system that is popular culture, Gareb and Wizard are a great
white," says Levin, an active player in the video game space. Levin was an early
investor in Gamespy Industries and serves on the board of directors of Habbo.
Continues Levin, "Gareb and I have been friends for many years and we`ve
searched for the right project to embark upon together. Peter Guber became the
secret sauce and GeekChicDaily was brought to life. We strive to bring to market
a daily, shot-in-the-arm of editorial covering the things we all get such a kick
out of." 

"GeekChicDaily captures the passion and thirst these hardcore fans have for
being the first to know what is cool before the rest of the world finds out,"
said Peter Guber, CEO of Mandalay Entertainment Group and entertainment business
thought leader and visionary. "My professional passion is all about
storytelling; GeekChicDaily will allow us to tell pop culture stories in the
most compelling way possible." 

Fans will have the ability to sign up today for the GeekChicDaily email
newsletter and dive into the exclusive content, razor sharp editorial and
discover the best geek-friendly products.
