Seattle’s mediapassage.com, the biggest Internet-based ad-placement
service for newspapers and magazines, and Chicago’s broadcastspots.com,
a Web-based broadcast ad-placement service, are merging and expect to
execute $500 million in transactions a year.
The merger comes after a year in which about a dozen rivals, most of
them aimed at Web and broadcast advertising, announced plans to begin
‘This is the first and only print and broadcast media end-to-end
solution,’ said Gilbert Scherer, mediapassage.com chairman and CEO.
Scherer will head the merged entity, MediaPassage.com Inc.; Jeffrey
Trumper, president and CEO of broadcastspots.com, will continue running
his operation, now a wholly owned subsidiary.
