UPROXX is the premier news and culture platform for the digital generation. Our team of journalists and storytellers deliver a mix of long form and short form news, sports, music, and entertainment content with a reference or intellectual connection you won’t find anywhere else. Shorter pieces provide trending news that people want to know about delivered in an authentic, distinctive voice. Longer stories shade in missing details, answer bigger questions, or expand your knowledge base. No matter the platform (video, audio, photo, written), expect UPROXX to deliver a cultural reference or connection point you wouldn’t find anywhere else. We’ll tune you in, engage you, and hopefully, occasionally, change your life.
