    Tab Media publishes editorial brands for young audiences in the US and UK.

    We currently have two youth media brands: The Tab, a news network covering student and youth culture, and, a site “for girls who don’t give a fuck”. They have a combined monthly audience of 50 million people and huge cultural influence. In the words of the New York Times: “Tab Media stakes out ground as a generation-defining brand a la MTV”.

    We started at Cambridge University in 2009 with The Tab, an antidote to boring student newspapers. The Tab soon grew into a network of local editions at top universities across the UK. Today, it is the country's number one student media brand. Our staff and army of guerilla reporters break stories, write sickeningly accurate guides to life, and chat to Jeremy Corbyn about Love Island. The Tab is based in our London office, where 27 people work, including our Technology team, who work across The Tab and babe.

    In 2016, we launched babe, the uncensored and unfiltered voice of young women. Babe now has millions of monthly readers, gets regular mentions on US primetime TV, and has a growing community of paying subscribers. Its office is in Brooklyn, New York.

    In the next year, we're investing in babe's community: building an iOS app which includes group messaging, and growing our membership product. We're going to launch a full refresh of The Tab brand, website and mobile app. And we'll continue to improve our CMS, Rosebud, which is built in React and sits on top of Wordpress.

    Our offices are young, energetic places where we talk straight, get results and celebrate properly when things go well.
