The website, a joint venture between AOL and Telepictures Productions (division of Warner Brothers / Time Warner), is a celebrity-centric news website featuring the latest celebrity gossip and any other up-to-date news. The website’s name derives from the historic 30-mile (thirty-mile zone, i.e. TMZ) stretch located between West Beverly Boulevard and North La Cienega Boulevard. The website is known for publishing exclusive news information that have often not made public, from Rihanna’s beating photo on the hands of Chris Brown, to being the first news outlet to report that socialist Paris Hilton would be sent to jail in 2007.
