FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, July 13, 2006 - Maxim.com, the world's foremost men's interest web property, has formed a strategic content-sharing partnership with CBS SportsLine, a leading Internet sports media organization and part of CBS Digital Media.
Maxim.com is part of the Dennis Digital network of young men's interactive brands and is the web site for Maxim magazine, the #1 best-selling men's lifestyle magazine in the country and the world.
The deal represents an intuitive cross-pollination of each site's respective strengths - the clever wit and beautiful women of Maxim.com with the breaking sports news, insight and analysis of CBS SportsLine (http://cbs.sportsline.com/).
Designed to deliver the young man's ideal web experience, CBS SportsLine is further bolstering Maxim.com's sports area (http://www.maxim.com/sports) with up-to-the-minute sports headlines and real-time scores for the site's millions of viewers. Links will bring users to the CBS SportsLine web site to get the full stories.
