Troy, Michigan – BNP Media, a parent company of POB, has entered into a partnership with Mike Rowe, host of cable show Dirty Jobs, to supply blogs for his Web site Trades Hub. The site is dedicated to championing the cause of the skilled trades.

Rowe has “apprenticed” at nearly 300 job sites during the course of hosting Dirty Jobs. Through those experiences, combined with a legacy of a carpenter grandfather, Rowe developed a passion for the skilled trades.

Check out his commitment to the trades by viewing this video.

Rowe launched his mikeroweWORKS Web site in 2008, providing resources, news, and a community forum for all kinds of trade workers. With the launch of sister site Trades Hub, Rowe is connecting tradesmen and women from even more trades by providing additional content from a number of selected trade media.

A big component of Trades Hub is the addition of hundreds of blogs written to help trades folk become better and their jobs, run their companies more efficiently, and develop the next generation of skilled trades workers.

This new platform brings together even more experts from such trade fields, including construction, plumbing, and HVAC. Several blogs are being supplied by BNP Media.

Specifically, Trades Hub is dedicated to providing high quality trades-focused content, centralized information, and business- and career-building news and stories. In short, Trades Hub will be collecting all kinds of blogs, articles, and news stories relating to the trades, by the trades, and for the trades.
