Co-founded by Ed Gonzalez and Sal Cinquemani in 2001, Slant Magazine has become known for its edgy, irreverent, and often funny pop cultural criticism. Using a grassroots approach, the site has carved a unique niche for itself in both the online film and music circles. Roger Ebert of the Chicago Sun-Times has called Gonzalez a “critic I admire” because of his “forcible writing style,” while The New York Times cited Slant as “a repository of passionate and often prickly pop-cultural analysis.” Slant's staff has appeared on MSNBC, FOX Business Channel, the Biography Channel, BBC, CNN, and NPR, and have been invited to contribute to the Village Voice, Los Angeles Times, USA Today, Time Out New York, and other prominent publications.
Slant Magazine has become one of the web's most popular film and music review sites, with over 500,000 unique visitors and 1.5 million pageviews per month. Slant attracts men and women of all trades and professions equally, with 65% of this audience evenly divided into two age groups (22 - 35 and 36 - 50). Advertising on Slant provides a great opportunity to target an audience that is hip, educated, and seeking out quality entertainment and products.
