Alan Lange of YallPolitics and Bo Bounds of the Out of Bounds radio show on ESPN 105.9 The Zone are both pleased to announce that effective November 01, 2010 that Bounds has purchased the remaining interest in YallSports.com. Originally developed in April 2008 by Lange and Bounds, YallSports has served over 2.8 million page views quickly making it one of the most widely read daily websites in Mississippi.
“We originally partnered to see if we could replicate the success of the YallPolitics platform in a sports medium,” says Alan Lange. “Over time, we proved the model. People were interested and the site has been successful. Now Bo and his team at Out of Bounds are investing in a new platform that better serves their users and advertisers.”
“This transition is something we’ve been planning with Alan for a while. My team is ready to take the site to the next level and feature more social media integration to complement the Out of Bounds radio show that will keep listeners interested in the hours of the day that we aren’t on the air. This move is a definite win for our fans, listeners and advertisers,” says Bo Bounds. “Alan has been a great partner and being affiliated with YallPolitics has served us well.”
While YallPolitics and YallSports will be separately owned, they will both continue to share the same dedication to first source content and serve as Mississippi’s dashboards for politics and sports respectively.
