Heavy is a global platform for the most sought-after news and information. Through its flagship website, Heavy.com, and Spanish-language platform, AhoraMismo.com, readers benefit from rapid, unbiased reporting to access the most sought-after news and information in real time.
According to a 2017 Slate.com article, “…the goals Heavy.com seems to strive for are clarity, speed, and ease of reading, with accuracy and comprehensiveness sometimes emerging iteratively as more information comes in. When big news breaks, particularly around a person or topic that was not previously in the news, Heavy seems to make it its mission to dig up, verify, and neatly package the relevant background information more quickly than anyone else. The site often manages this within hours of a big story breaking; sometimes it does it within minutes.
Heavy.com was founded by media entrepreneurs in 1999 as a video-focused entertainment destination. Heavy rebooted in 2012 as a real-time reporting platform for the most sought-after news and information, and now generates millions of visitors per month.
Heavy’s editorial team is a mix of veteran reporters and independent journalists working on an editor...ial agenda designed for quality, efficiency and speed. Heavy’s rapid original reporting and user-friendly formats has been recognized for being well ahead of mainstream news sites and Heavy is often sourced in editorial reporting by national publications.
Heavy is an independent media organization unaffiliated with any strategic or financial partner. Over the past decade Heavy has experienced exponential reader growth and sustained profitability.
