The Media Takeout website is about celebrity news and gossip. The website mainly targets African-American celebrities, and its homepage consists of several celebrity news headlines and comments.
The website gathers its news from media resources and anonymous tips. It comprises four sections: home, archives, advertising and accounts. The archives section features old celebrity news, while the advertising section allows subscribers to request video and advertising information. The accounts section allows returning users to sign in and new users to create accounts, which is a requirement to post a discussion or comment.
Media Takeout reaches a high percentage of the African-American population daily and claims it is "The Most Visited Urban Website in the World." Fred Mwangaguhunga, a former corporate lawyer, launched the website in January 2006.
