The Slate Group

The Slate Group is a US online publishing entity established in June 2008 by Graham Holdings Company. Among the publications overseen by The Slate Group are Slate, Slate V, The Root, and ForeignPolicy.com.[1]

The creation of The Slate Group was announced by Donald Graham, Chairman and CEO of The Washington Post Company, in a press release on June 4, 2008.[2] Its mission was stated as developing and managing a family of web-only magazines.[1] The release also announced that Slate Group was expected to work closely with Washingtonpost.Newsweek Interactive in the areas of advertising sales, technology and marketing services.[1]

In 2014, The Slate Group had around 121 employees and reported more than 25 million unique visitors and more than 120 million page views per month on average.[3]

Via a share in French company E2J2 SAS and other support, The Slate Group is involved in the French-language websites Slate.fr and Slate Afrique.[3] The Root, an online magazine focusing on African American culture, used to be held by The Slate Group until Graham Holdings sold it to Univision Communications in 2015.[4]
