Nerd is the Word: GeekChicDaily Becomes Nerdist News!

The bigger they come, the Hardwick we follow.

We announced the marriage of our brands a while back, and now, just in time for Valentine’s Day, we’re taking on our partner’s name. GeekChicDaily has become Nerdist News. And we’re not just doing it to be a trophy wife: ours will be a more perfect union, designed to bear fruit in the form of better all-around coverage and bigger projects, still in the style you’ve come to expect from GCD.

If you’re already a subscriber, you don’t need to do anything – the email newsletter will continue as it always has, but under the new name. If you aren’t, now would be a good time to jump on board. We’re building our own Youtube channel, running with lightsabers (legally) and giving away the nicest in Nerdswag (just wait till you see tomorrow’s newsletter). Plus, when Marvin E. Quasniki inevitably takes the White House this fall, we’ll basically have free rein to get government-subsidized collectibles.

With Chris Hardwick leading the brand, expect to see him jump in from time to time to bring the funny to your inbox in true Nerdist Way. We’re going to keep delivering great content, and you can anticipate even better access to the stuff you love. That’s more interviews, giveaways, events and features to start your day right (obligatory disclaimer: Nerdist News is not a substitute for breakfast, just a great companion to it). Want to let us know what you’d like to see? Come visit our Facebook and Twitter pages, because despite what you’ve heard, nerds aren’t socially awkward any more. Why should we be? We run everything now.
