Mehdi Hasan’s new media startup Zeteo reaches 100, 000 plus subscribers

Mehdi Hasan’s new publication startup called Zeteo has reached 100, 000 plus subscribers after almost a month since the launch. The journalist and now media entrepreneur’s new media venture combines video, podcasts and text journalism.

“When I left MSNBC in January, I found myself at a crossroads. I could either throw myself at the various job offers in my DMs and stay in mainstream media full-time or I could take the biggest gamble of my career and start something new… something different,” writes Hasan, just after the launch of the new company.

He says the publication, “will bring you hard-hitting interviews and unsparing analysis that you won’t find elsewhere.”

Zeteo in a blog post said: “In just a week, more than 100,000 of you from around the world, in every time zone, signed up to subscribe to Zeteo. In just a week! Thank you. You’ve sent a loud message to the media industry that there is an appetite for Zeteo’s brand of journalism that values accountability and diversity in opinion, and doesn’t cower from the truth.”

“100,000 subscribers. Let that sink in because it is a big deal. What this means to us at Zeteo is that we now have a loud mandate from thousands of people like you to deliver on our mission. We don’t take this responsibility lightly.”

According to a Hollywood reporter, Hasan is working with Substack on the launch, with subscription prices set at $8 per month or $72 per year. There’s also a $500 per year “founding member” option that includes a signed copy of his book and exclusive Zoom calls with the host.

“Will you join me and help build Zeteo from the ground up by becoming a subscriber, a paid subscriber?” he asks in the video. “Sign up below, and let’s change the news together. Because it’s time for a new media organization that isn’t afraid.”

Our main offerings, once we officially launch late next month, are going to be a weekly news program and a podcast. Both are in the works, and there’s a lot to be done, Zeteo in a blog post.

“That’s why we’re asking for your patience as we share limited content in this period so that we can hunker down and focus on preparing our prime shows – and rolling out our roster of monthly contributors.”
