Founder Rafat Ali to leave PaidContent

Rafat Ali, founder of PaidContent publisher ContentNext, will leave the company at the beginning of July.

Ali started PaidContent as a media news and analysis blog in 2002, and later added three other sites,, mocoNews and contentSutra, before Guardian News & Media bought it for £4m in 2008.

Tim Brooks, managing director of GMN, said ” As anyone who follows the company and reads our sites knows, Rafat has done an amazing job of building ContentNext from the ground up and we wish him every success in the future”.

Ernie Sander, who has been the managing editor at New York-based ContentNext for the past 18 months, will assume a wider strategic role.
