It’s been a long and stressful past couple of weeks, but the Hub is finally back up and running.
First of all I want to start out by saying thank you to all of you who reached out to us asking if everything was okay with the Hub, your concern means a great deal to all of the Hub staff. And secondly, I want to apologise to everyone who has visited, or tried to visit the Hub, over the past few weeks and have received any one of a number of error messages. Although the technical difficulties experienced at the site were largely outside my control and were caused by our host, I still feel that I have let you all down in not being able to solve the problem sooner, and have failed in the Hub’s mission to bring you all of the latest Colbert news as soon as it breaks. I know this literally could not have happened at a worse time. But I can assure you that we have been keeping up-to-date with all that Stephen Colbert has been doing, and that we cannot wait to start sharing it all with you again, including a very special taping report. So stay tuned!
In the meantime, here is a break down of what happened to the Hub, the steps we have taken to over come the problems, and what it means for the future of the site.
Colbert News Hub have partnered with the folks at Symphony Space to give away two tickets to see Colbert Report head writer Opus Moreschi at ‘Uptown Showdown: Family vs Friends’ on Tuesday, November 11th, 2014 at 8:00PM at Leonard Nimoy Thalia.
To enter, simply tweet your answer to the following question to us @ColbertNewsHub and include the hashtag #CNHGiveaway
Question: What is Opus Moreschi’s real first name?
The winner will be announced on Twitter on Sunday, November 9th, 2014. Please be sure to check your Twitter accounts in case you are the lucky winner!
Over a year ago, The Colbert Nation was in the midst of one of the greatest mysteries of our time…the ominous appearance, disappearance and re-appearance of Stephen Colbert’s Band Aids. What did it all mean? The mystery remains unsolved, yet there has been no further sightings of any band aids. I guess this means we can move on. Nothing more to see here…
…or is there?

We here at Colbert News Hub are fortunate enough to have a wonderful community, and I have no intentions of putting a stop to the Hub any time soon. But I am curious about how you, the Hubsters, interact and participate within the Colbert Nation. Where do you go to actively participate in the Colbert fandom? And by that I mean, I am interested in your active participation whether it be on websites or social media, as opposed to the simple consuming of articles or videos.
What are your preferences? Do you live Tweet the show and other Colbert events? Do you share visual media on tumblr, Instagram or Pinterest? Do you communicate your interest in the show via Facebook and Google + with close friends and family? Do you prefer the protection of the C-Section Facebook Group? Or dare I say it, are you old school and prefer verbal face-to-face communication with other people from the fandom?
The Shorty Awards honour the best of social media, recognizing the people and organizations producing real-time short form content on across Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, YouTube, Foursquare, and the rest of the social Web.
