Pajamas Media has decided to change its name to PJ Media to take the organization to the next level.

“This evolution of our brand ushers PJ Media into a new era,” said Roger L. Simon, founding CEO. “We saw that people were worried that their rights and freedoms were deteriorating, and the next generation was going to be shackled with massive government debt. We heard people’s concerns about how the country was moving away from its founding principles and watched as tea party activists and others protested these changes. It was clear that the time had come to shed our pajamas, change our name to PJ Media, and renew our commitment to the issues of freedom and liberty.”

The organization says it has become a necessity for 1.4 million readers who are reading 20 million pages a month.

The operation has covered stories that others in the media initially have passed by, such as the administration’s Project Gunrunner scandal, left-wing activism in the civil rights division of the Department of Justice, the Ground Zero mosque and the doctored climate change data.

“Our writers, columnists, commentators and other contributors will stand up for free thought and speech in society, schools and media; a free and prosperous economy; a secure financial future for Americans; and preservation of what makes America great,” the organization announced.

“This is an exciting time for PJ Media and a milestone we have been working toward for a long time,” Simon said in his announcement about the change. “PJ Media has experienced extraordinary growth that really speaks to the talent of our writers and dedication of our staff. Over the last six years, the PJ Media family has expanded and created a safe harbor for free speech to meet the ever-increasing public demand for independent news sources that celebrate the freedoms granted by the Constitution.

“Our team is looking forward to taking our mission to the next level and delivering more exceptional investigative reporting, informative analysis and entertaining commentary through, and,” he said.

The company was launched in 2005 to provide news and commentary via correspondents in more than 40 countries.

Its contributors include Victor Davis Hanson, Michael Ledeen, Glenn Reynolds and Claudia Rosett.

It also is home to PT Tatler, PJ Lifestyle and Instapundit. PJTV broadcasts daily from studios in Los Angeles,  Washington, D.C., New York City and Knoxville.
