Space.com’s fledgling director of communications left the web site

earlier this month to join goalnetwork. com, a soccer site providing

match results, news and features. The site launched in November.



’Soccer is where it’s at,’ Halpern said. ’It has billions of fans. Even

though this is a new market for me, it was an opportunity I couldn’t

pass up.’



Halpern rejoins her professional crony Rich Zahradnik, the former

president of Space. com, who is now president of goalnetwork.com. They

also worked together at CNNfn.



Space.com, led by former CNN financial pundit Lou Dobbs, is said to have

been plagued by numerous staff defections since its launch earlier this

year.



Goalnetwork.com was founded by Clive Toye and Craig Stoehr, who was

previously counsel to the 1994 World Cup and Major League Soccer. The

site boasts editorial offices in a range of cities around the globe,

including London, Milan and Montreal.
