From the St. Louis Business Journal

American City Business Journals Inc., has agreed to acquire Sporting News magazine, its online and book publishing units and Sporting News Radio Network from Vulcan Sports Media Inc. Terms of the acquisition, which is expected to be completed in early October, were not disclosed.

“Sporting News is a strong brand that we believe has considerable upside in print, online and on-air platforms,” said Ray Shaw, American City Chairman and CEO. American City is headquartered in Charlotte, N.C.

Persons outside of the publishing business might be more familiar with Shaw’s other name, Rip Van Winkle.
