Monday's media miscellany


[Laudable Laurel]

-- Brown alum Rufus Griscom, a founder of, gets notice in the NYT today for plans to spin off the parenting site Babble.

The “venture capitalists and media companies most interested in investing in and eventually acquiring Babble are for the most part different from those interested in Nerve,” Mr. Griscom said. “Also, we think the Babble opportunity is large enough to justify a cash infusion right now. Nerve is cash-flow positive and can grow without investment.”

Mr. Griscom is also stepping down as chief executive of to become the C.E.O. of Babble Media. Mr. Griscom will serve as nonexecutive chairman on the board at Nerve Media, but focus his full attention on Babble.

-- Kudos + Congrats to friends of the blog Stephanie DeSilva and Laurel Casey for getting their due recognition from Providence Monthly as leading bachelorettes.

-- Thanks to Bill Reynolds and Matt Jerzyk for the kind words on my forthcoming gig as WRNI's political reporter. More details to come.
