Turner Acquires Bleacher Report
Adding to its growing presence in digital sports, Turner announced today that the network has acquired the San Francisco-based sports website Bleacher Report. B/R is fast becoming a household name for sports fans with its top-quality and timely sports commentary. Since its public launch in 2007, it has grown to 10 million monthly unique visitors. According to David Levy, president of sales, distribution and sports of Turner Broadcasting, the thinking behind the acquisition is to leverage Turner's expansive digital rights and resources to ensure Bleacher Report's continued growth and success.
