WebMediaBrands Inc. (Nasdaq: WEBM) today announced that it has acquired the assets of Lost Remote ( www.lostremote.com), the leading blog covering the rapidly growing field of social TV, from its founder Cory Bergman. Terms of the acquisition were not disclosed.
“Lost Remote is yet another gem we are adding to the WebMediaBrands family of high quality social media blogs,” stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman & CEO of WebMediaBrands. “Combining Lost Remote with our other social media properties, as well as TVNewser and TVSpy, certainly solidifies our position as the leading blog network covering all aspects of television and cable news and analysis. We will continue working with Cory Bergman to produce social TV news and will soon announce dates for our first trade show in the social TV space to be called Lost Remote’s Inside Social TV.”
