History

TV Squad was initially envisioned by WIN CEO Jason Calacanis as a destination for fans of television shows to read reviews of not only recently aired episodes of television programs, but also reviews of episodes of TV shows of the past. It was quickly realized that readers of TV Squad were much more interested in reading television news and reviews of current programs, which is the primary format the weblog follows today.

Bloggers

TV Squad was originally conceptualized to allow any WIN blogger to write about the television shows they watch. Eventually a core group of bloggers for the site was realized, with several other WIN bloggers contributing on an irregular basis. TV Squad currently has approximately 17 regularly contributing bloggers.


As with most other WIN blogs, TV Squad has editorial lead bloggers. These lead bloggers are responsible for activating posts, managing bloggers, assigning features and working with outside media contacts.
