Number      Description

99.1        Press release issued by Rare Medium Group, Inc.
            on December 23, 2002.


             Pursuant to the requirements of the Securities Exchange Act of
1934, the registrant has duly caused this report to be signed on its behalf by
the undersigned hereto duly authorized.

                                  RARE MEDIUM GROUP, INC.

                                        /s/Robert C. Lewis
 DATE:  December 30, 2002         By:   ------------------------------------
                                        Name:  Robert C. Lewis
                                        Title: Senior Vice President,
                                               General Counsel and Secretary



reported that it had received notice following the close of business on Friday,
December 20, 2002, that the Company's common stock will be delisted from The
Nasdaq Stock Market as of the open of business on Monday, December 23, 2002.

The notice was contained in a decision by the Nasdaq Listing and Hearing Review
Council (the "Listing Council") overturning the August 19, 2002 decision by the
Nasdaq Listing Qualifications Panel to permit the Company's common stock to
remain listed. The Council cited Nasdaq Market Rules 4300 and 4330(a)(3) as the
basis for the decision, focusing on the Company's ability to maintain compliance
with the continued listing requirements over the long-term and what the Council
perceived as a lack of "tangible business operations."

According to the notice, Rare Medium's common stock is not immediately eligible
to trade on the OTC Bulletin Board. Accordingly, trading likely will be
conducted in the "pink sheets" and may result in a reduction in the liquidity
and the trading volume of the Company's common stock. This lack of liquidity may
also make it difficult for the Company to raise additional capital, if
necessary. In addition, the delisting from the Nasdaq National Market has
resulted in an event of non-compliance under the provisions of the Company's
preferred stock. If the Company is unable to obtain a waiver of this event of
non-compliance, the preferred stockholders will be entitled to elect a majority
of the members of the board of directors.
