Digital mediahouse Penske Media has stepped in to aquire a majority interest in Wenner Media, the family company that founded and ran rock bible Rolling Stone.The classic publication was put up for sale earlier this year after founder Jann S Wenner admitted that it was “time for young people to run it” and modernize the brand.He said so after selling its other titles Us Weekly and Men’s Journal.Penske, which owns 22 digital news brands including Deadline, Variety and IndyWire, boasted 179 million monthly active users as of August 2016.Company head Jay Penske said: "Our interest in Rolling Stone is driven by its people, its cultural significance, and the globally-recognized brand that has no peer in its areas of influence."We believe that Penske Media is uniquely qualified to partner with the Wenners to ensure the brand continues to ascend for decades across multiple media platforms — we're eager to get started."
Cultural bible, The Rolling Stone, has been put up for sale by publisher Wenner Media during a period of accelerated consolidation at the company.Following the sale of the independent publisher’s other titles, Us Weekly and Men’s Journal, the company is now selling its lead property, The Rolling Stone.Rolling Stone founder and owner Jann S Wenner is reluctantly looking to sell his 51% share in the mag that outweighs the 49% owned by Singaporean music tech start-up BandLab Technologies – a group owned by Asian tycoon Kuok Meng Ry.Speaking to The New York Times, Wenner said: “I love my job, I enjoy it, I’ve enjoyed it for a long time,” but added that the sale was “just the smart thing to do”.On the decline of print revenues in an increasingly digital and competitive market, Wenner said: “There’s a level of ambition that we can’t achieve alone, so we are being proactive and want to get ahead of the curve.“Publishing is a completely different industry than what it was,” he added.
Singapore-based social music-making platform BandLab announced today that it has acquired UK startup Chew, a live-streaming service for DJs.The acquisition allows the live-streaming tech to be integrated into BandLab’s web platform, as well as its Android and iOS apps, making it available for BandLab’s nearly 2 million users.Meanwhile, Chew will continue as a separate service, rebranding itself as Chew by BandLab.BandLab’s co-founder and CEO Meng Ru Kuok said that performing live is one of the most important parts of being a musician.“With Chew in the BandLab family, it means we can deliver more great technology and a streaming product to our users, as well as welcome in a group of very talented and passionate people to our broader community,” added Kuok.Chew was originally a graduate of the startup accelerator known as Ignite.
Chew.tv, a video streaming service for DJs to show off their mixing skills, has been acquired by BandLab Technologies, the Singapore-based ‘social’ music-making platform.Terms of the deal are undisclosed, though it was widely known that Chew.tv, which has been described as ‘Twitch for DJs,’ had been struggling financially over the last six months.Originally a graduate of accelerator Ignite, Chew.tv launched in 2015 as an online community for aspiring and professional DJs, with an emphasis on live video.The premise being that dance music DJs are both content consumers and creators, and that Chew.tv could serve both needs, allowing DJs at different levels to learn from and be inspired by each other — not entirely dissimilar to online gamers.That appeared to find some traction, seeing Chew garner an undoubtedly loyal and passionate user base.In July, it disclosed that the service had a community of 380,000+ users, who, since launch, have collectively created over 120,000 hours of content.
Rolling Stone has struck a chord with a new investor.BandLab Technologies Ltd., a closely held Singapore-based social music company, has purchased a 49% stake in the storied music brand, including the magazine and its digital assets.However, the investment doesn t include ownership in closely held Wenner Media LLC, Rolling Stone s corporate parent.The move comes as many publishers are seeking to broaden their portfolios to become less dependent on print advertising revenue.BandLab s investment provides Rolling Stone with the opportunity to expand into the live event, hospitality and merchandising businesses in Asia—areas where BandLab has experience.Mr. Wenner, 26 years old, is the son of Jann Wenner, Rolling Stone s co-founder, editor and publisher.
