A Sports Aggregator Finds a Home: Gannett Buys Quickish
Posted: 6/11/2012 | By: Peter Kafka | AllThingsD.com
The folks at Gannett, the newspaper publisher best known as the people who bring you USA Today, also want to be known for online sports. Here’s another move in that direction: The company’s USA Today Sports Media Group has acquired Quickish, a one-man sports aggregator run by Dan Shanoff.
This is a variation on your basic “acqhire,” the difference being that Gannett intends to keep Quickish operating once Shanoff starts working for them.
