|Type of site||Current events, culture|
The Awl is a website about current events and culture based in New York City. The site was founded in early 2009 by David Cho and former Gawker editors Choire Sicha and Alex Balk. The latter two continue as its current editors. It is published by John Shankman.
The Awl has four sister sites, Splitsider, a comedy website, The Hairpin, a site geared toward women, The Wirecutter, a consumer electronics blog, and The Billfold, a blog with a focus on personal finances.
In 2011, David Cho left the Awl, after 18 months, to join ESPN's new sports site Grantland.
