Den of Geek

The editor-in-chief and founder of one of the UK’s most popular entertainment websites Den of Geek, Simon Brew, has announced his resignation from the site.

Brew announced his resignation on Twitter, after 11 years of running the entertainment website that is owned by Dennis Publishing and covers ‘Geek Culture’ through news and reviews, from movies, television, comic books and video games.

In a tweet he stated: “I'm really, really sad to say that, eleven and a half years after I founded the site, I've handed to Den Of Geek UK my resignation as Editor In Chief. It's now in writing, and I'll be leaving the site in late October.”

He added that he was leaving with no job to go to but said that he was actively seeking a new role and highlighted that his direct messages on the platform were open for approach.

“I've loved working with some truly brilliant people, but will save my thank yous for when I finally go if that's okay,” he continued and said that he would continue to post using the @filmstoriespod account, which promotes his podcast.

“Couldn't be prouder of what we built, and the readers who support it. Hugs,” he added.

Den of Geek has sites in both the UK and US and according to SimilarWeb received 15.26m visitors in June.

At the time of writing, Dennis Publishing had yet to respond to The Drum for a comment.
