TVSpy is excited to announce that it has been acquired by WebMediaBrands and will join the company’s mediabistro blog network, which includes the hugely popular TV news blog TVNewser. Heres an excerpt from the press release…

“TVSpy and its predecessor ShopTalk have been the go-to source for coverage of local television news and job moves for more than two decades,” stated Alan M. Meckler, Chairman and CEO of WebMediaBrands. “TVSpy fits perfectly into our Mediabistro blog network, which includes TVNewser, the must-read site for coverage of network news. The combination of TVSpy and TVNewser should further ensure our leadership in coverage of local and national broadcast and cable news on air and online.”

“TVSpy has been an important part of the broadcast news business for a very long time. We are thrilled that with the WebMediaBrands acquisition TVSpy will be integrated into media blog powerhouse Mediabistro. We are delighted that TVSpy will have the right parent and the right focus to drive the continued growth of this important business,” stated Claude Sheer, CEO of Vault.

With this acquisition, TVSpy renews its commitment to being the go-to platform for news, information, and discussion related to the broadcast news industry. TVSpy.com, the TVSpy message boards, and the ShopTalk e-newsletter will all remain largely unchanged for the near future and you can rest assured that future changes made to the TVSpy network will be made with the goal of better serving the exceptionally loyal TVSpy audience.
