What’s Go Media Been Up To? – April 2012

What's Go Media been up to?

We have been working like mad men/women over the past month and we have made some amazing progress towards our goals for the year. WMC Fest 2012 is just around the corner so keep a lookout for the new site which will be launching in no time at all. The Go Media Arsenal team is busy debuting new products and working on ideas for future releases.

On a sad note, the amazing Adam Wagner will be leaving the Go Media family for an incredible opportunity in San Francisco. Adam will be sorely missed and things will not be the same without him. Arsenal followers, have no fear, because the superwoman, Liz Hunt is now at the helm and she has been an inspiring new leader!

To celebrate Adam’s tenure with Go Media, we had a bowling party at the Corner Alley Bowling Alley in downtown Cleveland. Check out the pictures below to see what it was like:
