"Geeked" Launches Today in Creative Loafing
BOSTON, MA (March 10, 2005) – Boston’s Weekly Dig’s newly syndicated “Geeked” column launched today in Creative Loafing Atlanta, an alternative news weekly serving the Atlanta Metropolitan area. Created by Bostonâ€™s Weekly Dig Editor at Large Seth Donlin and co-written by long-time contributor Adam Diamond, “Geeked” is the alternative news weekly industryâ€™s first column dedicated to the culture of gaming.
“I’m flattered to have a column I started as a bit of a labor of love appear in the pages of a paper as well respected as Creative Loafing Atlanta — a paper that began publishing the year that I was born,” Donlin said.
First published in 1972, Creative Loafing Atlanta has a circulation of 150,000, the second-most broadly distributed newspaper in Georgia. It is the flagship of four weekly newspapers owned by Tampa, FL. based Creative Loafing Inc.
Donlinâ€™s “Geeked” column has appeared in Bostonâ€™s Weekly Dig since 2003, which currently distributes 55,000 weekly. With the syndication it now reaches over a half millions readers in Boston and Atlanta.
“It’s exciting to see other alt-weeklies beginning to realize how important gaming has become to our core readers,” Donlin said. “The gaming industry is now a bigger money maker than even Hollywood; this is something that you don’t want to miss out on.”
