BUZZMEDIA has acquired SPIN MEDIA. Under the terms of the deal, BUZZMEDIA gains SPIN.COM, a source of news and features; SPIN's print magazine; the award-winning SPIN PLAY app for iPAD; and SPIN's established events business.
"As music consumption continues to grow, there is an enormous demand for deeper context and engagement with thousands of diverse artists," said BUZZMEDIA CEO TYLER GOLDMAN. "SPIN's category-leading editorial and photographic content provides the added social context that the audience is seeking by identifying, exploring and documenting the trends and scenes that shape music culture. While content is now being consumed across numerous devices, the key for all platforms is the type of great storytelling that SPIN provides."
