Stocks in this article: IPG

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- World leader in celebrity video Young Hollywood, LLC and Momentum Entertainment Group (MEG) – the content development and production division of Momentum Worldwide – have announced the joint launch and ownership of an upcoming channel that will debut in April 2014 to capitalize on the excitement and celebrity buzz surrounding FIFA World Cup 2014 in Rio.

The new channel will give digital savvy viewers a never-before-seen look at the worldwide celebrity and athlete presence surrounding the biggest global event in sports. The channel will stay true to the Young Hollywood reputation for taking its audience beyond the velvet rope with exclusive access and one-of-a-kind coverage, revealing the inside stories of celebrity life as told by the celebrities themselves – this time right from the World Cup epicenter in Brazil. The channel will also be fortified by MEG's global content capabilities (the content studio packaged ROGUE and produced Full Circle with DIRECTV this year) and Momentum's worldwide brand partnerships.

"We're incredibly excited to partner with Momentum to create this new channel around the Rio events, opening new doors for Young Hollywood and its viewers, as we continue to provide the industry's premiere multi-platform celebrity experience – wherever that experience lives," said Young Hollywood Founder/CEO RJ Williams. "There's an untold story of the World Cup celebrity experience that Young Hollywood will tell in living color, in a channel that will lead to new partnerships and content opportunities."

"Our collaboration with Young Hollywood is an exciting move for Momentum as we partner to pioneer new channels, inventive content, innovative brand opportunities and international connections with audiences passionate about celebrity and sports," said Momentum Chairman & CEO Chris Weil. "We're excited to advance our proven reputation for high quality content that speaks to modern consumers across media."

Young Hollywood's content has received over 2 billion views to-date across its multiple distribution platforms and combined social media touch points. In addition to owning its flagship site – YoungHollywood.com – Young Hollywood syndicates its content to several other high profile media partners, including YouTube (an Original Channel Partner), HULU, Yahoo!, AOL and numerous mobile and broadcast television outlets.
