Ron Burkle, Magic Johnson Acquire BlackBook Media

Ron Burkle and Magic Johnson have teamed up once again, this time to acquire BlackBook Media. Last February the duo purchased Vibe Holdings, a deal that saw Johnson becoming the Chairman of the company.

The New York Post reports that an enticing part of the BlackBook acquisition was Access Network, a software division of BlackBook Media. The software is used by a variety of companies for listing services.

BlackBook Media will be combined with Vibe Holdings, with Ari Horowitz operating as its CEO.
