The Business Insider, launched today, aggregates Silicon Alley Insider, Clusterstock and The Business Sheet, into one site.

“Our goal is to build the leading online business news brand for the digital age,” said Blodget in a release. “Readers have responded to the real-time news and analysis our targeted sites present.”

Blodget also hired Dan Colarusso, former managing editor of Portfolio.com, as its new managing editor, responsible for day-to-day editorial operations of the sites.

The aggregated site has a draw of 2 million monthly uniques and 7 million page views.
