Grind Media Buys Transworld

20 May 2013, 20.53 | Posted in craze, WTF | No comments »


In some super boring corporate news, Source Interlink’s Grind Media which owns Skateboarder, Snowboarder and Surfer magazines has just bought Transworld Media from Bonnier Corp meaning that it now has doubles of the most popular board sport magazines in the world. There are also some BMX and moto titles in the mix but that part of the story is even more boring. What does it all mean? Basically just that the media side of the action sports industry is going the way the product side already has, with corporate synergy trumping originality at an alarming pace. We think it sucks and have already hit up our friends at YoBeat to get in on their poll about the situation. Thanks to Boardistan for the info and the amazing graphic above, if you want the hard news on this deal, hit them up here. In the meantime, maybe the three of us should join forces to create the only independent bloc of action sports media left!
