Arts Webmaster Hits His Mark, Twice

ARTS WEBMASTER HITS HIS MARK, TWICE
FIFTEEN YEARS APART


Sites make "Cool Site of the Day"


New York, NY (5/25/2010) -- CoolSiteoftheDay.com chose the official website of Jazz at Lincoln Center as their Cool Site of the Day today.  The site's webmaster is veteran arts webmaster Andrew C. McGibbon

This is the second time the prestigious website directory has featured one of Mr. McGibbon's sites.  On January 12, 1995 McGibbon's BroadwayWorld-Wide.com was the Cool Site of the Day.  The site was one of the first websites devoted to Broadway theatre.  BroadwayWorld-Wide.com was bought by iconic theatre magazine Playbill and became Playbill.com.  Mr. McGibbon managed the site for four years.  He subsequently managed the website for the Tony Awards, TonyAwards.com, for nine years.

"I am so honored to have had this long association with the arts here in New York.  It has afforded me untold opportunities and I am proud to have played a part in promoting New York City's rich, cultural treasures," said McGibbon.

Since 1994 CoolSiteoftheDay.com has been surfing the web looking for the best web sites that demonstrate notable strides in innovation, content, and design and choosing one each day that that they deemed worthy.  Daily visitor ranking of each “Cool Site of the Day” determines which sites are nominated to receive the coveted “Cool Site of the Year Award,” and then the public votes to determine the actual winners.

In addition to his work at Jazz at Lincoln Center, Mr. McGibbon has started yet another Broadway website, TheAndyGram.com.  Launched in January of 2009, The AndyGram presents reviews of Broadway shows and an opportunity for others to share their own opinion.  It also offers a Broadway calendar listing all preview, opening and closing Broadway show dates and a feed of Broadway press releases called the "Broadway Press Release Retweet."  His material is syndicated through RSS, Twitter and widget feeds as well as Newstex.com.
