On The Menu: Disney’s Marvelous Acquisition

mmm_2-3.gif

The first day of September means big news for the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast. Disney‘s acquisition of Marvel was the talk for the day for hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven. They both agreed the deal is a huge get for Disney, which now controls a huge portion of the cartoon/comic book/superhero market.

Also discussed, The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette‘s new paid content Web site, which Matt and Jason agreed might lose the paper some readers unless it can come up with a local angle and provide news that no other media outlet can provide — like a special book about the Superbowl champs.
