BRAVO DIGITAL LAUNCHES FIRST WEB PERSONALITY, 23-YEAR-OLD YOUTUBE WUNDERKIND WILLIAM SLEDD, ON THURSDAY, JUNE 21, WITH 'ASK A GAY MAN' WEB SERIES

Sledd Tackles Thorny Fashion -- "It Just Really Bothers Me When People Look Like Crap," Said Sledd -- And Pop Culture Topics On Bravo's OUTzoneTV.Com And BravoTV.Com

First Webisode: "Ask A Gay Man: The Wedding/Commitment Cake" Edition Launches Thursday, June 21, To Coincide With Gay Pride

NEW YORK - June 19, 2007 - As part of Bravo's ongoing effort to deliver original content from the buzziest personalities on the web, the network announced OUTzoneTV.com's June 21st launch date of the popular "Ask A Gay Man" webisode series hosted by Internet sensation and Gap manager William Sledd, a 23-year-old Paducah, Kentucky native. Timed to coincide with Gay Pride, the first webisode entitled "Ask a Gay Man: The Wedding/Commitment Cake Edition" features Sledd and his BFF Stephanie, "the best wedding planner in western Kentucky," demonstrating how to make a pink-on-pink-on-pink cake, perfect for gay/straight/bi betrothal ceremonies. The announcement was made today by Jason Klarman, the network's Executive Vice President, Marketing and Digital.

Bravo also announced that Sledd will be OUTzoneTV.com's voice at a variety of gay pride-related events providing commentary and posting man-on-the-street video installments during the course of the week.

Armed with a video camera and a mission, Sledd's weekly vlogs (which are several minutes in length) tackle thorny fashion and pop culture topics and offer witty and irreverant advice about the fashion/style issues of the moment.

From locations as diverse as his hometown of Paducah, to the streets of Manhattan, Sledd muses on all the wisdom and tips users need to survive the long hot summer. Webisode themes will include thought-provoking topics from the wedding/commitment ceremony cakes to dressing to beat the heat.

The baby-faced Sledd, who leans toward preppy in his own choice of style, admits that "it just really bothers me when people look like crap." He first made headlines last November when his eighth YouTube installment, exploring the world of denim, was watched more than two million times and quickly thrust him into the national limelight.

Currently, Sledd, whose "Ask A Gay Man: Fashion Edition" was recently nominated for best series in the first YouTube awards, has almost 40 videos posted to YouTube and boasts almost 60,000 subscribers.

The launch, announced by Bravo executives last month, is part of a larger digital expansion this month offering Bravo fans four new web-exclusive series for www.BravoTV.com and www.OUTzoneTV.com including the June 5th premiere of "My Life on the Z-List: Jen's Vlog," a companion web series to "Kathy Griffin: My Life on the D-List;" and "Miami Spice: Hot Recipes with Latin Flavor" and "Top Recipe: The Wong Way to Cook," web extensions for fans to further savor "Top Chef," which began on June 13.

"We're really ramping up our online original efforts, tapping both Bravo's buzziest personalities and those we've found on the web," said Klarman.
