Mail.com Media Corporation (MMC), the digital media company that owns and operates the Mail.com portal and email service as well as a growing portfolio of lifestyle brands, including HollywoodLife.com, MovieLine.com and OnCars.com, announced today its acquisition of the Internet’s highly respected and widely read website for original content about the infotainment industry DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com. MMC also begins a long-term partnership with former Newsweek and Los Angeles Times and New York Magazine writer/reporter Nikki Finke, the founder and writer of DeadlineHollywoodDaily.com and one of the foremost entertainment business journalists in the world.

We asked Nikki if this means she’s rich now. “GNP of a small country,” she tells us. Then added,”I’m now working for a 30-yr-old. I’m a business cougar.”

Awesome. Mazel tov!
