Co-Founder, Bleacher Report
Dave Finocchio is a Co-Founder of Bleacher Report. He serves as the company’s Chief Content & Product Officer, and as a Vice President at Turner Sports.
Finocchio launched Bleacher Report (B/R) in 2007 with the ambition of building a sports network for the next generation of fans — a network that focused on entertaining and comprehensive coverage of the most popular teams and topics in the U.S., Canada and Europe.
B/R is known for its innovative approaches to content creation and curation, and for using detailed analytics to drive programming and production decisions. B/R’s popular sports app, TeamStream, is one of the most highly rated sports applications in the Apple and Google App stores. BleacherReport.com’s audience skews younger than the audiences of other large, digital sports-media properties, and its content tends to be more visual and interactive.
Today, Bleacher Report is one of the most visited sports-media websites in the United States and has offices in San Francisco, New York and Chicago. The company was acquired by Turner Sports in August.
