ATLANTA and NEW YORK, March 4, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Rare.us, a Cox Media Group property, and Crown Forum, one of America's leading publishers of politically conservative authors, today announced the launch of Rare Forum, an exclusive content and marketing partnership to bring conservative writers to a new and broader readership. Rare Forum pairs the best-selling authors published by Crown Forum with the online news and social media reach of Rare.us, which has annualized page views of 25 million.

Rare Forum, an exclusive content and marketing partnership, brings conservative writers to a new and broader readership. Rare Forum pairs the best-selling authors published by Crown Forum with the online news and social media reach of Rare.us.

The Rare Forum partnership will highlight exclusive, first-look content from esteemed Crown Forum authors through the Rare platform as well as an author speaking series, book forums, and other online events and sites. Crown Forum publishes many of the most prominent conservative writers, thought leaders, and political figures, including Charles Krauthammer, Greg Gutfeld, Allen West, Charles Murray, Michael Barone, and Pat Buchanan, among many others.

The Rare Forum partnership comes at a time when online and social media are the most effective ways to reach younger Americans, a key audience for the future of conservative thinking and politics.

"In just our first year, Rare has emerged as a gathering of important conservative voices, which readers turn to approximately 2 million times per month," said Leon Levitt, Rare publisher. "Our partnership with Crown Forum means our valued readers will get an even greater offering from Rare through exclusive, first access to leading conservative thinkers. Rare is on a steep growth trajectory and we are simply thrilled."

Tina Constable, Senior Vice President, Publisher of Crown Forum, said, "We are excited to embark on this new partnership with Rare.us. Bringing together Crown Forum's leading thinkers and bestselling authors with this exciting, new online platform for conservative news and opinion will heighten the level of engagement about the most important issues of the day. We believe Rare Forum will fill a space that has been underserviced for the young conservative reader."

The Rare Forum partnership is designed to be both unique and timely in a quickly changing conservative landscape. As the nation looks toward the 2016 presidential election, the conservative party is gaining a younger, more diverse supporter base.

"They must have a place to call home, where many voices are in discussion with each other. Getting exceptional Crown Forum content first on Rare will make those discussions more meaningful," said Levitt.
