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.

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.
