New York, NY (February 6, 2019) - Group Nine Media, the publisher with the largest audience on mobile, today announced the launch of “Nine-Fronts,” a multi-city content presentation series designed to provide a first-hand glimpse at the company’s extraordinary combination of memorable storytelling and data insights; and bring the company’s four brands - NowThis, The Dodo, Thrillist and Seeker - to life for advertisers across the country.  

The initial phase of the series will hit New York, LA, San Francisco, Chicago, Dallas and Boston. 

“As our super fan base brings more habitual viewing, we’ve been creating first-to-market partnerships with advertisers that are setting new standards for brand storytelling.
