- Gawker shut down in 2016, but sold select sites to Univision, who renamed the group Gizmodo Media Group.
- Univision had bought the properties in 2016 with hopes of combining it with its Fusion brand.
- However, that never materialized and Univision began shopping the properties around.
- The company is forming a parent, G/O Media Group, to run the properties.
