LOS ANGELES, April 29, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Whipclip, the free mobile app that allows fans to legally create and share their own video clips of television shows and music videos, today announced new partnerships with TBS and Team Coco to add Conan to Whipclip's line-up.
Using Whipclip, Conan fans can now create short video clips of hilarious moments from the late-night series hosted by Conan O'Brien and share them as the show airs to Facebook, Twitter, Tumblr, Pinterest and via email and SMS.
"Conan is one of the sharpest, funniest hosts in late night and we're thrilled to have his unique brand of humor on Whipclip," said Richard Rosenblatt, co-founder, CEO and Chairman of Whipclip. "Fans can now interact with Conan in a new way by sharing their favorite comedy moments from the show in real-time."
Since it premiered in November 2010, Conan has been a hit with TBS's core audience of young adults, scoring a younger median age than any other hour-long talk show in late night.
Conan is a powerhouse when it comes to the digital realm, with a social media following of more than 18 million fans across 12 different platforms, including 16.2 million Twitter followers (more than any other late-night star on cable), 2.5 million Facebook fans, 4.6 million Google Plus followers and 2.6 million YouTube subscribers.
Conan recently celebrated a milestone when a total of 3.7 million viewers watched Conan In Cuba, in which O'Brien became the first American late-night host to do a show in Cuba in more than 50 years. Conan airs Monday through Thursday at 11pm ET/10:00 pm CT on TBS.
