SPAC Deal Makes CEO of Conservative Video Platform a Billionaire 

A SPAC deal has made the founder of a conservative social media platform a billionaire — and it’s not Donald Trump.

Chris Pavlovski, chief executive officer of Rumble Inc.(NASDAQ:RUM), is worth more than $1.8 billion after the lightly moderated video network — which features daily shows from hosts including Glenn Greenwald and Russell Brand — went public Monday by merging with a blank-check firm led by Cantor Fitzgerald’s Howard Lutnick. Pavlovski, who is Canadian, owns almost 140 million shares in the company, which he founded in 2013.

Also benefitting was Lutnick, the CEO and chairman of blank-check firm CF Acquisition Corp. VI. Through the SPAC sponsor, he now controls shares in Rumble valued at more than $148 million.
