Internet Maven Abrams to Expand Online Publishing Empire

NEW YORK - NOVEMBER 13:  MSNBC correspondent D...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeNBC News Chief Legal Analyst Dan Abrams, son of prominent First Amendment lawyer Floyd Abrams, buoyed by the success of media news Web site Mediaite and his four other Web properties, is expanding his digital publishing realm, according to a New York Times story.

The 44-year-old former MSNBC anchor next year will debut Mogulite, which sounds like a mutant race from H.G. Wells' Time Machine, but will be a Web site devoted to covering prominent business personalities. Also in the works are a job board site to compete against Mediabistro.com, and Mary Sue, a technology news Web site targeting women.

Besides Mediaite, Abrams presently is the online publisher of Sportsgrid, fashion and beauty site StyleiteGossip Cop and technology site Geekosystem. According to the Times article, the five sites combined generate more than 6.4 million views monthly. Abrams believes the sites could begin operating in the black early in 2011.
