It's Mandatory: AOL Partners With BermanBraun On New Men's Site

Mar 29, 2012

Today we launched our first online destination for men,, in partnership with BermanBraun.

We've taken a bit of a different approach to the men's site, bringing a unique combination of focused user experience together with real facts and knowledge from celebrities and voices that that every man can relate to.

Sponsored by our friends at Gillette for launch, Mandatory is overseen by Lead Editor, Cory Jones, the founding Editor of Break Media's and former Editorial Director of

Some of the topics we'll be taking on: tracking down the closest macro brewery, evolving into a Renaissance Man in 60 seconds, and a regular review of Mancessities, items that all men should own. Mandatory will provide answers to some of the questions you didn't know you'd need to ask.
