Bill Simmons’ New Website, Grantland, Launches Next Wednesday At Noon
Bill Simmons announced on Twitter today that his new website, Grantland.com, will launch on Wednesday, June 8th, at noon.
Up until now, the site had a not-so-concrete start time in June. But the word from Simmons is that – surprise! – the most anticipated sports blog ever is less than a week away.
The site features an impressive collection of talent, and will feature longer pieces than your traditional, quick-hitting blog post. But pulling it together hasn’t been easy.
Simmons has recently expressed frustration over the drudgery involved in launching the site, and in a radio interview with fellow ESPNer Tony Kornheiser, he noted that it’s a lot easier when you only have to worry about yourself. In a New York Times Magazine piece that hit the web Tuesday night, he said creating Grantland hadn’t been “as much fun” as he originally thought it would be.
