About Chas

Chas Edwards is co-founder, president and publisher at California Sunday, publisher of The California Sunday Magazine and the live event series Pop-Up Magazine. Chas was also co-founder at Federated Media, where he served as publisher and chief revenue officer (CRO). As CRO at Digg he helped launch the first native ad product for social news feeds. He’s also held executive management posts at CNET Networks, mySimon, and Luminate, and worked in book publishing, magazines and cable TV along the way. He writes on advertising and digital publishing at All Things D, Ad Age, Adweek, Techdirt, and here at ChasNote.

It’s been said “The sun never sets on the editorial offices at ChasNote.” And just as frequently there have been reports of massive layoffs and ruthless, unwarranted firings of that same staff. The ChasNote public affairs office offers no comment on either.
