For decades, attracting travel writers to your destination meant countless hours of PR cajoling and coordination, followed by month after month of waiting for the story to hit the pages of a glossy print journal. While that system hasn't gone extinct, it's hardly the norm for travel writing anymore.

Internet influencers are not as well-known as traditional stars, but their fans are more devoted.
Matt Skallerud's insight:
In its first publicly disclosed measurement of influencers, Q Scores discovered in the first quarter of this year that compared with, say, TV stars, awareness of the digital talent pool is still quite low, even among U.S. teenagers. But it found that the level of fan engagement around influencers is stronger than that in most sectors of the celebrity universe.

AT&T wants TV viewers to "snack on Fullscreen." The telecommunications giant announced Friday that it is taking Fullscreen's digital influencers and scripted originals to AUDIENCE Network, a channel available to DIRECTV and U-verse subscribers.
A man who has made videos on YouTube for more than ten years has decided to switch up his schedule. Michael Buckley, who emerged as one of YouTube’s first stars in the mid-2000s, has announced a number of changes to his channel. Most significantly, he will no longer air new episodes of his signature program, What The Buck Show.
Matt Skallerud's insight:
By providing his viewers with a decade of celebrity gossip, pop culture commentary, and LGBT advocacy, Buckley attracted more than 1 million subscribers to his primary YouTube channel. In recent years, however, the format employed by What The Buck (which is filmed in simple fashion in front of a green screen) became increasingly outdated. At the same time, Buckley’s own interests began to change. “I’m just not as into pop culture as I used to be,” said Buckley in a video titled ‘The End.’ “I’m 41 years old. The jig is kinda up.”
Our sixth-annual profile of talented female performers and writers in Toronto who don't always get the attention they deserve.
Matt Skallerud's insight:
Smith isn’t the first queer comic profiled as a LLWMUL (2015’s Aisha Alfa, for instance, who now splits her time between Toronto and LA has become a featured vlogger for Queer Comics), but she’s certainly the most loud and proud lesbian to date. Her act, which crackles with impish energy, frequently involves her teasing the straight men in the audience over how much more “mad puss” she “crushes” then they do.
This past year has been very rough for me. I left my manager, lost my Mtv show, struggled with the relationship with my mother, dealing with racism and homophobia in the industry and self image was such a struggle. I put my all into auditioning for NBC's "The Wiz" and got so close to landing the role of the Scarecrow, but didn't get it. I want to thank my family, friends and fans for helping me out of this dark place and encouraging me to turn my struggle into art. The Wonderful Wizard of Oz has always held a special place in my heart, and I have never been more proud of anything I've created. Thank you all for standing by me on this crazy yellow brick road we call life. Enjoy "Straight Outta Oz" and I hope to see you all this summer when we perform it live. Tickets are on sale now at todrickhall.com and I CANNOT wait to share the story of my life and Oz with you every night.
