The deal combines NTVB’s TV-centric publications—TV Weekly, Channel Guide Magazine, Hopper Magazine and View—with the standard-bearing TV Guide.
“Acquiring TVGM allows NTVB Media to offer advertisers a highly effective way to reach all segments of the TV viewing audience,” said NTVB president and CEO Andy DeAngelis, in a statement. “Together, the properties will be extremely effective in helping programmers gain audience.”
TVGM will keep its offices in New York, L.A. and Newton Square, Pa. TVGM CEO David Fishman and CFO Joe Clemente will also remain with the company.
Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
