Net News Daily (NND) is a British news website founded by Scott Campbell and Nathan Adam. The site covers a range of topics, such as technology and entertainment and includes a prominent interviews section. Net News Daily was launched on 8 January 2009 as a simple news blog, but has grown since then.[2][3][4]

Site popularity[edit]

Much of the publicity the site has received has been focused around the young age of the two founders,[2][3][4] including a Newsround report on Scott Campbell.[5] The site's creators have claimed in interviews that NND receives up to 5000 visitors per day.[6][7]

Interviews[edit]

The site has conducted interviews with YouTube stars and people involved in breaking news stories.
