Drew Grant


My name is Drew Grant, and everything you've heard about me is a lie. Sure I was the founder of The New York Observer's successful television vertical, tvdownload, as well as the Arts & Entertainment editor of the publication, but reports of me losing our ASME Awards in an unlicensed Queens poker room are greatly exaggerated.

And while I am known for the breadth of my pop culture expertise, leading to appearances at Comic-Con, New York Television Festival, WGA panels and an episode of Law & Order: SVU, I have never been approached by an administration–past or present– requesting that I become the first American Ambassador of Global Streaming Content.

Yes, I have produced leading content for outlets such as Forbes, Maxim, Cosmopolitan, The A.V. Club, McSweeney's, Salon and many others; however 'Powerblogger' is no longer an acceptable substitution for my preferred 'Ms.' prefix.

While I do pride myself on scouting and editing incredible talent– having worked with over 120+ writers thanks to the freelancer contributor models I've implemented at The Observer and as Managing Editor of RealClearLife–the speculation that I secretly funded any J-school incubators as a way to guarantee 'first-dibs' on the next generation of incoming journalists is fake news.

In summary, don't believe everything you read about Drew Grant, except for the part where she is an experienced writer and editor, specializing in entertainment, pop culture, arts, lifestyle and journalism.

I currently live on Earth, where I am always looking for ways to transform the media landscape.
