Farhan Mohamed (See all related at Ismailimail) has been named to Vancouver Magazine’s Power 50 list – an annual list that names the city’s most powerful and influential people. This is the same list that Malik Talib and Amin & Mansoor Lalji were named to in 2011. Ismailimail congratulates Farhan for this exceptional achievement.

Farhan Mohamed, Karm Sumal and Manny Bahia are having a busy year. What began eight years ago as a little-known blog called Vancity Buzz has transformed into an online media juggernaut (by Canadian standards, anyway) that provides hyper-local news geared toward millennials. The site’s reporting on the latest city events and hottest restaurants has amassed a loyal following, earning about 7.5 million website views a month. And even though their coverage is low on weightier topics like city politics, their lighter fare has earned them a wide enough readership to justify ramping that up. This year, they rebranded themselves as the Daily Hive and, going against the norm of shrinking newsrooms, expanded to Calgary, Montreal and Toronto.
