MEDIABISTRO LAUNCHES NEW BAYNEWSER.COM BLOG TO REPORT ON SAN FRANCISCO AND SILICON VALLEY NEWS MEDIA

New York, NY (May 11, 2009) - mediabistro.com, a division of WebMediaBrands Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBM), today announced the launch of BayNewser.com, its latest news media blog site.

BayNewser.com will cover the rapidly changing media landscape in the endlessly innovative San Francisco/Silicon Valley market. BayNewser.com will deliver the news about the news in the Bay Area, break media stories from Russian Hill to Menlo Park, and cover the new media ventures the rest of us only learn about later. From Google to Craigslist, from the Chronicle to the Merc, from KNTV to KCBS — BayNewser.com will be your one-stop source for news about the Bay Area news media.

"Silicon Valley is the natural next stop for the mediabistro.com blog network," says Laurel Touby, SVP and founder of mediabistro.com. "This is where the media of the future will be invented and we'll be there to cover that reinvention and the conversation around it. BayNewser.com is just the beginning of more great offerings from mediabistro.com. Look for more cocktail parties, must-attend events and now a media blog the Bay Area can call its own."

mediabistro.com is hosting a cocktail party this evening in San Francisco to celebrate the launch of BayNewser.com and the upcoming mediabistro Circus (www.mediabistro.com/circus). To attend and meet the bloggers please RSVP at www.ersvp.com/reply/circuspartysf
