    NewsGator Offering in Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 Enables Users to
    Read Selected Content, or Watch On-Demand Video Content

    DENVER, CO - June 4, 2004 - Today, NewsGator Technologies announced that the
    recently launched NewsGator Media Edition is featured in Windows XP Media
    Center Edition 2004's "Online Spotlight," an online guide created
    specifically for Media Center Edition PC customers that offers a central
    location for them to find the latest third-party services and software, such
    as music, movie trailers, news updates and even Karaoke.

    NewsGator provides a mechanism for Media Center PC users to easily find
    NewsGator software and services online, without having to separately
    download anything from the NewsGator web site. Both text and multimedia
    content is supported, and information that has not already been viewed on
    another device can be displayed by synchronizing user subscriptions with
    NewsGator Online Services.

    "We're excited to be included in Online Spotlight - this will dramatically
    increase our visibility to the many thousands of Media Center PC users,"
    said Greg Reinacker, President & Founder of NewsGator Technologies.

    NewsGator Media Center Edition is included as part of NewsGator Online
    Services. NewsGator Online Services includes three other content reader
    editions, which allow users to read content they have subscribed to from any
    web browser (with Web Edition), any email client (with POP Edition), and
    from a mobile wireless device (with Mobile Edition), which is a powerful
    feature for road warriors who use mobile devices to access information while
    on the road. The service also provides exclusive, subscriber-only content to
    its subscribers, as well as the ability to search for content that matches a
    specific keyword or URL, and return that content in a feed. NewsGator Online
    Services pricing starts at $5.95/month per user.

    "Media Center PCs allow consumers to have faster and more efficient access
    to all of their favorite digital content when, where, and how they want,"
    said Brad Brooks, Director of Marketing at Microsoft Corp. "With the
    NewsGator Media Center Edition, NewsGator Technologies is delivering a
    complementary and innovative service that will let Media Center Edition PC
    users easily access their customized choice of news services."

    duplication. The combined power of NewsGator Media Center Edition and Online
