Santa Monica-based BermanBraun announced today the acquisition of Whiskey Media, the online media company created by Shelby Bonnie, co-founder and former CEO of CNET.
But BermanBraun did not acquire all of Whiskey Media’s Internet properties. The websites Giant Bomb and Comic Vine are reportedly being sold to CBS Interactive.
The Whiskey Media web properties that will be added to the BermanBraun portfolo include Anime Vice, tech site Tested, and the film and television site Screened. BermanBraun has also acquired Whiskey Media’s content publishing platform.
BermanBraun is a film, television and digital production company owned by former TV executives Gail Berman and Lloyd Braun. Together with MSM the company operates celebrity news site Wonderwall and the women’s lifestyle site GLO.
