NextShark is an American digital media and entertainment company whose content is focused mainly on Asian American[2][3][4] and Asian News.[5][6] The brand produces editorial and video content, live events, and social media content about topics such as business, culture, entertainment[7], lifestyle, and politics.[8]

History[edit | edit source]

NextShark was founded by Benny Luo in 2013 after he sold NewMediaRockstars. The company initially started as a Entrepreneur-focused publication, but pivoted after noticing uptick in Asian-centric content.[9][10] The company is headquartered in Newport Beach, California.[11] They receive over 3 million readers a month making them the largest online publication targeting Asian Americans.[12][13][14][15]

In October 2014, Leung Chai-yan, daughter of former Hong Kong Chief Executive Leung Chun yin, threatened to sue NextShark for libel following unflattering reports about comments she posted on her Facebook page.[16]
