Key remaining assets of the former Gawker Media Group have been sold.

  • Private equity group Green Hill Partners have bought the remaining assets of Gawker, which include Gizmodo, Jezebel, Lifehacker and Deadspin, among others.
  • 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.
