8/1/11

Five-month-old New York startup Bedrocket Media Ventures, a video studio for Web and TV content, raised $9 million and wants to raise another $2.5 million in this round according to a regulatory filing. Bedrocket CEO and co-founder Brian Bedol previously founded television channels Class Sports Network and College Sports Television. Bedrocket co-founder Kenneth Lerer was chairman and co-founder of The Huffington Post, which was sold in March for $315 million to AOL. Lerer is also a manager of Lerer Ventures. Bedrocket has revealed little of its plans beyond a prior interview with AllthingsD.com.
