In 1985, Charles “Charlie” Besser founded the sports marketing and entertainment agency Intersport, Inc. In an expansion of the company’s media programming capabilities, Charles Besser oversaw the launch of CelebTV.com in 2007.
Intersport created CelebTV.com as a news, entertainment, and information resource that produces multiplatform programming. CelebTv is particularly known for reporting on the world of entertainment, covering everything from breaking celebrity news to red-carpet events. CelebTV.com currently produces 10 to 12 high-definition, original videos every day about movies and television, celebrities, fashion, health and diet, and entertainment news that can be viewed on digital devices across a variety of platforms. To date, CelebTV programming has collected more than 1.5 billion video views online.
In July 2013, CelebTV signed an agreement to provide content for a 30-minute show that will be carried through Net2TV’s Portico TV service. Net2TV curates short-form Internet content like that produced by CelebTV and updates it daily in a tradition television-show format. The general manager of CelebTV believes that the website’s content will be a perfect fit for Portico TV, which expects to be seen on 20 million screens by the end of the year.
