Jim Spanfeller spent the better part of the 2000s as CEO of Forbes.com, during which time the site achieved consistent traffic growth and success with advertisers. During that period Spanfeller also emerged as a leading voice in digital media, eventually serving as chairman emeritus of the Interactive Advertising Bureau. Last fall, after forming the Spanfeller Media Group, he rolled out The Daily Meal, a high-end content venture aimed at foodies and cooking enthusiasts. Spanfeller tapped a big name, Colman Andrews, one of the co-founders of Saveur, to head up editorial for the new site, which debuted in January. Thus far, traffic for The Daily Meal has been growing consistently, as the site approached the 1-million unique mark in April, according to comScore, surpassing established players like Eater, Food & Wine, and Bon Appetit.
