Here are some key parts of the statement:
Due to strategic changes at BuzzFeed, Another Round is parting ways with the company in 2018. We were surprised and initially disappointed to hear of these changes, but fortunately, we were offered ownership of the show.
Naturally, we accepted. This whole thing started as an experiment in a “studio” made of pillows and blankets swiped from around the office and it grew into a space of acceptance and self-care for those who need it, a place to duck into and laugh when the world is too much, and a stage where the overlooked and silenced can see themselves and their stories reflected at long last. The world needs spaces like these now more than ever because in these tough times it’s community that will get us through, and the amazing community that we’ve all built together is too meaningful for us to walk away from.
