About Daily Lounge

The Daily Lounge is more than just an information and media source. Our fans come together with our editors to share and post news, and be part of the conversation. Our dedicated editorial team works to bring new and interesting discourse that matters to our fans, to the table. We also hosts regular live roundtable chats so readers can interact with experts on a wide range of relevant topics.

The online world is vast, cold and solitary — The Daily Lounge is a lively hang out that brings communication back into the news!
