BuzzFeed and Facebook’s ‘BuzzFeed Brews’ Partnership Launches Tonight

BuzzFeed BrewsLost Remote will be at “BuzzFeed Brews” tonight to cover the viral content site’s first event partnership with Facebook for tonight’s interview between Reddit founder Alexis Ohanian and BuzzFeed tech editor Charlie Warzel.

Facebook will serve as the primary video content platform for “BuzzFeed Brews,” which is an event interview series BuzzFeed has been doing at local bars for over a year (previous guests include Jerry Seinfeld, Anthony Weiner, Nancy Pelosi, Daniel Radcliffe).

The interview, which starts at 6:30pmET, will stream live on BuzzFeed’s Facebook page, with on-demand clips posting on Facebook after.  “CBS This Morning” will be the broadcast TV partner for the series; the broadcast morning show is producing tonight’s event with their cameras, lighting, and other resources. CTM will also incorporate parts of the event on-air and on their website.

“We’ve seen fantastic sharing and impact with Facebook video, so we’re thrilled to extend our partnership with BuzzFeed Brews and make it easier for our readers to share live video and clips with their friends,” Ashley McCollum, VP of Business Development & Communications for BuzzFeed, tells Lost Remote.


“It’s great to see BuzzFeed values what a powerful platform Facebook is for distribution and engagement,” Andy Mitchell, Facebook’s Director for News and Global Media Partnerships tells Lost Remote. We are happy to see them taking video to the next level, extending their BuzzFeed Brews content to an even larger audience through Facebook.”

We’ll have coverage of tonight’s event up tomorrow.
