Discovery and TreeHugger Team Up

From the release:

    Discovery Communications, the number-one nonfiction media company, today announced the acquisition of the leading eco-lifestyle website, TreeHugger.com. The interactive site becomes part of Discovery’s global multiplatform initiative Planet Green, which includes the first 24/7 eco-lifestyle TV network launching in 50 million homes in early 2008.

    The deal brings TreeHugger.com’s rich mix of news, blogs and advice to Planet Green and furthers Discovery’s previously announced goal of developing original programming related to the environment, sustainable development, conservation and organic living. In acquiring TreeHugger.com, Discovery is pursuing its multiplatform strategy of being the leading content provider across nonfiction genres around the world. The transaction will not have a material impact on earnings in year one.
