Good GodTube, That's A Lot of Dough
Via The New York Times' DealBook blog comes word -- or, perhaps in this instance, The Word -- that Dallas Theological Seminary student Chris Wyatt's GodTube is flush with dough-re-mi courtesy a NYC hedge fund. Reports PaidContent.org, New York-based GLG Partners has blessed the site with $30 million, which is on top of $2.5 million raised courtesy private investors -- "including Norm Miller of Interstate Batteries," says the site. Only, nobody's saying nothing about the influx of cash, except GodTube, which released this non-denominational statement: “We have enjoyed substantial growth over the last several months and we are excited about taking out business to the next level, but we do not have any formal announcements to make at this time.” --Robert Wilonsky
