Time Warner Acquires The Bleacher Report For $175 Million. We Wait For Our Call From Time Warner

Dang! That’s a lot of dough. The Bleacher Report is the third highest viewed sports site behind ESPN and Yahoo sports. because of that, Time Warner wanted in on the deal. Turner Networks are owned by TW and this site will surely heel expand the audience of the sports that TNT and other turner channels offer. Sports bring a lot of money and ads because everyone watches sports. Perhaps the most popular tech blog, Engadget has recently been shopped around by AOL for as little as $70 million in comparison.

This is also another rags to riches internet story. The founders were just a group of high school buddies who were fanatical about their favorite teams. They knew others felt the same and started a site to spread news for avid sports fans. Now if I could find some friends to help me write maybe I can get like $10 for Gizmoninja.
