Fate of Gawker.com Uncertain

A good URL is a terrible thing to waste.

When Univision acquired Gawker Media, it scooped up everything but Gawker.com, which it believed to be too tainted the Terry “Hulk Hogan” Bollea lawsuit.

In a bankruptcy hearing, Gawker Media Gregg Galardi argued “There is a value to this site [gawker.com],” when asked by a judge why it shouldn’t just be taken offline.

According to The Wall Street Journal, Galardi said the site should be sold or monetized in some way; shutting it down forever would be a hinderance to Gawker Media’s remaining creditors.
