Popular technology news aggregator Techmeme said Monday it was launching a new site focusing on media news, Mediagazer.com.

Mediagazer editor Megan McCarthy said the site will use the same format as Techmeme, publishing links to the latest media-related stories and blog posts on a single page.

With the media business in "tumult," McCarthy said, "keeping up with these changes is time-consuming, as essential media coverage is scattered across numerous websites at any given moment."

"We collect relevant takes on an issue and package them together in a comprehensive group of links," she said in a blog post. "You get the big picture."

Mediagazer "will focus on the content production and distribution business, organizing topics as wide as journalism, blogging, video production, e-books, and digital distribution technologies," added Techmeme founder Gabe Rivera.

Like Techmeme, Mediagazer will be put together by a combination of automatic aggregation and human editors.

Techmeme has also launched two other sites, WeSmirch, a celebrity news site, and Ballbug, a site about baseball, but they have not enjoyed the popularity of Techmeme.com
