Manhasset, N.Y.âCMP Technologyâs Channel Group said Monday that content from its CRN and VARBusiness Web sites has been combined to create a new Web site, ChannelWeb.com. The CRN and VARBusiness Web sites have been shuttered as standalones. ChannelWeb.com includes news and product reviews from CRN along with more in-depth features from VARBusiness and GovernmentVAR magazines. Larry Hooper, who had been editor of CRNâs Web sites and e-newsletters, has been named editor of ChannelWeb.com. Asked why CMP had combined the two Web sites, Hooper said: âWe want to talk to a single universe of readers, and combining the content is more powerful. We found ourselves competing against one another, and it didnât make sense.â ChannelWeb.com includes a white paper library and message boards.
