MMC acquires Nikki Finke blog

Digital media firm buys DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com

NEW YORK -- Digital media firm Mail.com Media Corp. said Tuesday it has acquired Nikki Finke's DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com industry blog.

The company also already owns HollywoodLife.com, Movieline.com and OnCars.com.

Financial details weren't disclosed.

MMC said it will distribute Finke's content across its digital media network. "Her DeadlineHollyoodDaily.com can continue to extend its reach and influence and finally have the web platform it deserves," said Jay Penske, founder, chairman and CEO of MMC.

"I was fortunate to have had much interest and many offers from major corporations and media companies to consider over the past 18 months," said Finke, whose title will now become general manager, editor in chief and founder of DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com. "This deal was worth waiting for."

Within 90 days, the blog will become bi-coastal with the planned hiring of a New York City-based "senior journalist" who will report to Finke, MMC said.
