Social publisher The News Movement is on pace to generate a seven-figure revenue after launching in the U.S. a year ago, according to cofounder and president Ramin Beheshti.

While other media companies have increasingly sought to cultivate direct relationships with their readers, The News Movement has moved in the opposite direction, building its business on short-form video platforms like TikTok, YouTube Shorts and Instagram Reels. 

In the third quarter, the publisher grew its total social follower count by 40%, and total views rose from 30 million to 51 million, according to Beheshti.
