Launched in 2007 by a recent college graduate and his friends, it didn’t take long to establish the Red Carpet Network as a trusted media brand. “Once publicists, producers and event planners saw the quality of our content, we were given full media credentials and invited to the city’s biggest premieres and events,” said Gunnar Larson, 25, founder and CEO of the Red Carpet Network and NetworkGlobal Companies. “These days, we interview the world’s top celebrities, trendsetters and thought leaders.”
RCN’s journalists apply the same ethics to their features reporting as they do the hard news content on sister channel NGB.tv. In both cases, people simply want the truth. All too often, feature journalists compromise their integrity by writing glowing reviews of bad products just to get their blurbs published on movie posters or to grease the wheels for A-list interviews. On the flip side, many tabloids, blogs and online forums dumb down their content by focusing solely on scandal and snarky, negative editorial.
RCN exists to make a positive impact and encourages its online viewers to make smart, informed decisions about how to spend their valuable leisure time. The site’s innovative business model monetizes its video and editorial content without pandering to the audience or the advertiser.
The RCN App, and its associated video content, is free to download via iTunes.
NetworkGlobal Companies, a consumer lifestyle brand founded by Gunnar Larson, launched NetworkGlobal.tv in 2007. The site quickly grew to an advertiser-supported media company, drawing millions of video streams monthly to its fresh video content. In addition to the Red Carpet Network, NetworkGlobal’s NGB.tv focuses on world news and social issues. Broadway.tv showcases the best shows Broadway has to offer. OZtralia.tv sets its sights on Australia’s limitless travel destinations. BMI.tv (Body Mass Index) and BodyArchitect.tv feature health and lifestyle programming. Beyond television, NetworkGlobal Companies owns two retail ventures, Virtu New York fitness apparel and Canine Caviar in Manhattan. http://www.networkglobal.tv/
