meredith arthur content

A decade of experience crafting distinctive, trusted, local content.

A founding member of food site CHOW/Chowhound (acquired by CBSi in '06),  I spent 8 years building the site into a robust online presence (that 10M people visited a month). 

This is probably the happiest man you'll see today.

A short documentary I produced for the site, The Soda Pop Obsessive, was nominated for an Emmy Award in 2010.

In 2013 I joined Scripps Networks to help build their first video-first initiative, ulive.com, experimenting with how to get online viewers more engaged with the shows they loved from the Food Network, HGTV, and the Cooking Channel. The site averaged 3M views just 6 months post-launch.

Hands-on Startup Experience

Starting in 2014, I worked at exciting, rapidly evolving early-stage startups focusing on mobile technologies and marketplace economies.
