CPXi Buys SpinMedia Sites

The sites previously were under SpinMedia.

The New York Post reports that CPXi has purchased three sites— Celebuzz, The Frisky and The Superficial—from the private equity firm M/C Partners.

This is the second large sale from M/C Partners in the past couple weeks. In late December, the firm sold SpinMedia music sites Spin, Vibe and Stereogum to The Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group.

CPXi (sometimes referred to as CPX Interactive) was founded in 2000. It mainly operates as an ad marketing company, but does publish three sites: PressRoomVIP, HipHopMyWay and Warped Speed. Its CEO is Micheal Seiman.
