Human Events Media Group announced Tuesday that it has acquired Canadian-based conservative media outlet The Post Millennial, according to a press release.
“I am thrilled with the incredibly deep and diverse platform this combination creates,” said financier Jeff Webb, who brokered the deal. “Our talent lineup is second to none. This is a new media powerhouse that will constructively influence the political dialogue in this country while simultaneously challenging some of the largest, most-established publications. We are positioned to grow, and to grow fast.”
Webb is also the publisher of Human Events, once known as former President Ronald Reagan’s favorite magazine, which was purchased in 2019 and revived as an online news and opinion outlet.
“We are building a media enterprise that reaches the entire spectrum of the conservative world, in all demographics, and across all platforms,” Webb said. “The Post Millennial is a critical part of this effort because it reaches an important younger demographic and can break stories faster than any newsroom I’ve come across. I can say without hesitation that we have one of the most talented, intelligent, and creative stables of writers, thinkers, and reporters anywhere in news.”
The Post Millennial’s editor-at-large is Andy Ngo, who is known for his work documenting Antifa rioting and violence nationwide.
But the merger promises to bring together more conservative media stars.
“The new conglomerate will be comprised of some of the most followed and influential journalists and commentators in the conservative media world including Jack Posobiec, Charlie Kirk, Libby Emmons, Andy Ngo, Katie Daviscourt, Ari Hoffman, Brent Hamachek, and Chris Barron alongside a deep bench of staff writers, editors, and podcasters,” the press release said.
“Joining Jeff Webb and the team at Human Events is incredibly exciting. I’m looking forward to working with an owner who has such a strong commitment to bringing conservative ideas to the American cultural space,” Emmons said of the acquisition. “The Post Millennial have been pioneers in calling out wokeness in education, and combating the real misinformation out there, which is namely the adherence to narrative over fact that we see in so much of American corporate media.”
