National Enquirer To Push Out Daily Gossip E-Mail

NEW YORK–National Enquirer magazine and eUniverse Inc. announced plans to launch GossipFlash, an e-mail newsletter and Web site featuring Hollywood gossip.

GossipFlash will deliver articles from the National Enquirer’s Web site to subscribers’ e-mail boxes once a day, and will offer advertisers the ability to place ads in the e-mails and in the print National Enquirer.

National Enquirer is published by American Media Inc. of Boca Raton, Fla.

Several weeks ago, eUniverse acquired InfoBeat, an e-mail newsletter service, from Sony Corp.’s 550 Digital Media Ventures. As part of the deal, Sony took a minority stake in eUniverse.

EUniverse’s network of e-mail services reach more than 40 million subscribers. The company is based in Los Angeles.
