Roger L. Simon's mostly politics and media operation is morphing from the Pajamas brand into PJ Media. He describes the evolution since 2005, when the Los Angeles-based site grew out of his blog.
In 2005 when we founded our blog site, Pajamas Media, we were on a mission to shed light on the topics and issues important to Americans but often ignored by the mainstream media. Over the next six years, we added influential bloggers, writers and contributors, and they reported on everything from politics and government to economics and culture. We were all over stories that other media outlets gave a pass -- like the doctored climate change data, the gunrunners' scandal, Department of Justice voter fraud and the Ground Zero mosque. Thanks to you, our audience reached 1.4 million monthly readers who consumed 20 million page views at last count.
In 2008, we added PJTV, our Internet video channel, to bring you moving images of the places and people in the stories we were covering. And in 2010, the PJ Institute was created to handle analysis of the big issues that frequently lead the news cycle like the evolving economy and how it affects your personal finances.
Today, Pajamas Media is taking its next big step. We are shedding our "pajamas" and evolving our name to PJ Media.
The slogan for the new platform: "Voices from a free America." Simon is listed as CEO of PJ Media, LLC. Early supporter Glenn Harland Reynolds, the Instapundit blogger, explains in a post: "Whatever you want to call us, we’ll still be here, still doing what those old TV networks and newspapers don’t do."
