Univision is looking to divest Fusion Media
Group — parent company of sites including Gizmodo and Deadspin — as the company
restructures under new leadership, The Wall Street Journal reports, citing
anonymous sources. A spokesperson for Univision declined to offer comment to
WSJ. The move comes just two years after Univision acquired Gawker Media for
$135 million after the company was hit with a lawsuit by Terry Bollea (a.k.a.
Hulk Hogan), TechCrunch notes. Univision folded Gawker's brands into its Fusion
unit. In June, Univision appointed former Media General CEO Vincent Sadusky as
its new CEO, replacing Randy Falco. The shift came after Univision ditched
plans to go public earlier this year.
