Deadspin is a sports news and commentary website that was launched in September 2005. The website is known for its in-depth coverage of a wide range of sports, including professional and college sports, as well as its focus on investigative journalism and critical analysis of the sports media industry. Deadspin is known for its irreverent and often humorous approach to sports news, and has a reputation for being unafraid to tackle controversial or sensitive topics.
Deadspin is owned and operated by G/O Media, a digital media company that was formed in 2019 after the merger of Gizmodo Media Group and The Onion. The website is edited by a team of experienced journalists and writers who are passionate about sports and dedicated to providing readers with accurate and insightful coverage of the latest sports news and events.
In addition to its coverage of traditional sports, Deadspin also covers a wide range of alternative and emerging sports, such as e-sports and extreme sports. The website also features a popular comment section where readers can share their thoughts and opinions on the latest sports news and events.
Despite facing several challenges over the years, including changes in ownership and management, Deadspin has remained a popular and respected source of sports news and commentary. In November 2020, G/O Media announced that it would be shutting down the website, but it was later revived by a group of former Deadspin writers and editors, and continues to provide readers with high-quality sports coverage to this day.
