IN3MEDIA INC., owners of the online radio trade RADIO-INFO.COM, have agreed to sell the site to TALKERS MAGAZINE, the trade publication which also operates TALKERS.COM, owned by SPRINGFIELD, MA-based TALK MEDIA INC.
As ALL ACCESS reported WEDNESDAY (NET NEWS 8/1), PHYLLIS STARK, who had been writing the STARK COUNTRY newsletter for RADIO-INFO, told ALL ACCESS that her last day at the company would be TODAY (8/3).
Several other writers are also exiting the company including SEAN ROSS, DANIEL ANSTANDIG and VALERIE GELLER. DANA HALL and TOM TAYLOR -- who didn't mention this sale in this morning's e-mail -- are reportedly still aboard, for now.
TIMEOUTCHICAGO's ROBERT FEDER reports, "Terms of the agreement were not disclosed, but the new corporate entity, RADIO INFO INC., will begin operating out of TALK MEDIA INC. headquarters, as of AUGUST 19th. MICHAEL HARRISON, who founded TALKERS in 1990 and has been its only publisher, will double as publisher of RADIO-INFO.COM. A joint statement released THURSDAY said the two publications will maintain 'independent brands, identities and websites'."
