The Voice Of Generation-Y

Our Story

Elite Daily’s founding team grew tired of traditional media publications mandating that news coverage be presented in a dull, one-dimensional manner and set out to create a highly engaging, socially driven content platform that would radically change and redefine the meaning of a media publication. With an audience of over 70 million monthly readers, Elite Daily has established the largest, fastest growing community of millennial voices on the web.


Elite Daily is Millennials’ preferred platform for today’s hot issues and trending topics, from politics to dating and everything in between. We’re committed to meeting the ever-evolving needs of Generation-Y, whether that be a source of information, a good laugh, a shoulder to cry on or a place to have their voices heard. Our staff is made up of young media professionals who, like our audience, have opinions and are brave enough to start the conversations that need to be had.
