History

MedPage Today was founded in 2004 by CEO Robert Stern. In March 2005, the site began providing original health content to CNN.com. MedPage Today stories were a regular part of the CNN.com Health section for the next 15 months. The site also wrote a weekly Journal wrapup for CNN.com. At around the same time, MedPage Today also provided contextual medical news stories to the MSNBC.com Health News section.[3] In mid-2006, MedPage Today focused strictly on the healthcare professional market. In February 2008, MedPage Today broadcasted live video and on-demand coverage from the press conferences of the American Stroke Association's 2008 annual meeting in New Orleans, Louisiana, and MedPage Today will continue to provide this feature, available only on their site.[4] In June 2008, the company added a "60-Second Video Update" news broadcast that runs every weekday at 1 p.m. EST.
