Tech Crunch is reporting that popular comics blog Comics Alliance, along with AOL Music, is being bought up by Townsquare, and will include staff contracts, after news ove a month ago that AOL was to close both.
The AOL-owned blog reports;
The deal, whose terms were undisclosed, puts the properties back under the stewardship of Townsquare’s executive vice president Bill Wilson, who was formerly the president of AOL Media during the time the sites launched in 2008-2009 and helped develop them. The staffs of these sites are joining Townsquare.
Bill Wilson just tweeted;
