While few have escaped the wrath of the recent unemployment and stock market issues, some hardworking Americans are leaning on their ingenuity and entrepreneurial spirit. These Americans have decided to take their future into their own hands and forge forward ahead with their own business plans. One such entrepreneur has started a life long dream in beginning a software media company. This business, R.Skye Media (http://www.rskye.com), has emerged as a local news portal in a period when many media companies are struggling to survive. Denver media giants, such as The Rocky Mountain News and The Denver Post, have struggled recently as more of their readers move to the internet and have struggled because of the large debt load. The question remains whether this shift has emerged temporarily or permanently.
R.Skye Media offers a portal* site (http://usa.rskye.com) that focuses on national news and also will deliver content on a local and worldwide basis. This portal includes news from the country's top sources. Also the portal will include coverage of sports, business, entertainment, style, and weather. The R.Skye portal has branched out into the local and regional markets as well. The Denver portal (http://denver.rskye.com) has broad coverage of the top Denver news, Denver Weather, Denver Entertainment and Denver Sports including coverage of the Denver Broncos, the Denver Nuggets, the Colorado Rockies, Colorado college sports, and Colorado Prep Sports, or high school sports.
R.Skye Media has several new sites under construction. These portal sites that are under construction include Kansas City (http://kansascity.rskye.com), Dallas (http://dallas.rskye.com) and Las Vegas (http://lasvegas.rskye.com). Future articles will continue to highlight a local Denver business fighting against the tide.
*The definition of a portal: Portals historically will aggregate content from many sites and many portals will focus on a specific topic or area. The purpose of a portal is to find a site or content for you and help to organize the vast amount of content on the internet.
