The press release says that Newsarama Senior Editors Michael Doran and Matt Brady will join the staff of Imaginova's editorial team and will continue to oversee the day-to-day operations of the site.
Doran and Brady also say, "Starting now, however, we'll be armed with the resources to begin phasing in additional content and introducing new media to improve site design, functionality, and dependability, and ultimately to expand our brand of coverage to other entertainment genres you're all already interested in."
