Wizard World, Inc. (symbol: WIZD) (the “Company”), a digital entertainment and event company, today announced that Kevin Kelly has been named Managing Editor for its Website, social media and digital content endeavors. Kelly was most recently the Senior Features Editor for G4tv.com, the popular tech and video games site for the TV network G4.

In his new role, Kelly will oversee and produce content across all of Wizard World's digital media platforms, including WizardWorld.com, Facebook, twitter and mobile device initiatives.

Kelly is a transplant to Los Angeles from Texas, where he spent his formative years studying radio, television and film production, as well as writing and children's literature at The University of Texas in Austin. After heading to the West Coast he had an extended stint at The Jim Henson Company, working in development on everything from MirrorMask to Farscape. Since then he's sought solace writing about everything from video games to the entertainment industry at Gawker's io9, AOL's Moviefone, Cinematical, Joystiq and other outlets that accepted his geekery. At G4, he produced Feedback! and produced and organized extended written features.

“I am very excited to bring my love for pop culture to Wizard World, which has long been part of the drip that feeds the addiction in my veins,” said Kelly.

“We are excited to have one of the stars of the industry on board at Wizard World,” said Gareb Shamus, Wizard World CEO. “He brings a vast knowledge of the space and respected skills to the position as we grow our digital media business.
