CHNL Brings the Best in Music to Streamy Awards' Official After-Party

Recently Launched Social Media Content Browser Will Curate Event With Guest DJs Jason Bentley of KCRW and CHNL CEO John Wander

LOS ANGELES, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/15/13 -- CHNL (http://chnl.it), the social content discovery browser, today announced that it will co-produce the official exclusive after-party for this year's Streamy Awards, the first held since 2010. The after-party will include DJ sets from KCRW's Jason Bentley ("Morning Becomes Eclectic") and CHNL co-founder and CEO John Wander. Bentley and Wander previously performed separate DJ sets at Social Media Week Los Angeles' "Social 25" Party last September.

"It seems like there's a popular new social network every month, creating a discordant experience in our online lives. I like to think of CHNL as the harmonic convergence of all these social networks. I'm glad to be working with John and everyone at CHNL to bring some in-person harmonic convergence to the Streamys after-party," said Bentley.

Bentley has been at KCRW, Santa Monica's popular public radio station and an innovator in the freeform music radio format, for over 20 years. He has also served as the music director and host of the station's flagship "Morning Becomes Eclectic" program since 2008, and has worked as a music supervisor for such films as The Matrix trilogy and Tron: Legacy.

"Jason has helped set the bar when it comes to defining a 21st century curator," said Wander, who has worked for many years as a House/Techno DJ, angel investor and entrepreneur, including his work with CHNL. "Ultimately, we want CHNL to be the 'Jason Bentley' for all your online content, whether that's your favorite new song or web video. The Streamys are a perfect opportunity for us to work together again. This is the kind of audience that looks to someone like Jason to fill out their musical diet and looks to a platform like CHNL to fill out their online diet."

CHNL offers the quickest way for users to scan the social media content most important to them, while discovering the best videos, music, photos, and news they might not even know about. Last year, CHNL launched a public beta for discovering shared content across a broad range of social networks, including Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Instagram, YouTube, Flickr, Soundcloud and Tumblr, and has since added local deals engines such as Groupon and LivingSocial. In 2011, the company helped the acclaimed DJ duo Thievery Corporation establish an exclusive direct-to-fan page.

"Just in the last couple of years, the social media landscape is such that a resource like CHNL is the only way to stay updated on your favorite music group or web personality. It's not like a decade ago where MySpace was the only social entertainment go-to. Today, your favorite music artist might not just be on Twitter, they could also have pages established on SoundCloud and even Instagram. CHNL is the one place where you can keep full tabs on your favorite artists socially," added Wander.

The third annual Streamy Awards presented by CocaCola will be hosted this year by "The Nerdist" Chris Hardwick at the Hollywood Palladium. This also marks the first time the awards are being co-produced by dick clark Productions and Tubefilter. The Streamy Awards After-Party is scheduled for Sunday, February 17, 2013 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. at the rooftop of the Andaz Hotel in West Hollywood.
