Splashpress Acquires 901am

There was a brief post over at 901am.com yesterday by “admin” announcing the acquisition of 910am.com by Splashpress Media, the owners of the Blog Herald-:

We are pleased to announced that Splashpress Media has acquired 901am.com. We remain committed in bringing new media news throughout the day. We are currently working on moving the site to a new server. Thank you for your patience.

What has been missing from this announcement and its aftermath, as one would usually expect, is any word from David Krug himself. In this light, Splashpress have asked me to release the following statement-:

In the aftermath of the 901am.com sale, Splashpress would like to take the opportunity to thank David Krug for the marvellous job he did in building 901am.com and in such a short period. We believe the site still has great potential to grow and to dominate the niche that covers new media news. We are happy to announce that Minic Rivera, contributor at the Blog Herald and former editor of the Blogging Times, has agreed to be editor of 901am. And last, but not least, we would like to wish David Krug a speedy recovery, as he has been unwell now for a few weeks. Please join us in our prayers for him.

No doubt more news will follow on this.

    Yes, David needs everyone’s well wishes. Please send him your prayers.

    David–you are missed…we’ll be here to welcome you back when you’re ready.

    Thinking of you,

    So what’s the deal – I get an invitation to continue blogging at 901am via email.

    But then my account gets shut off.

    I guess I should expect this sort of behavior, but geesh —

    For some reason I always thought David Krug and Splashmedia were “one” or at least that he was employed by them. Don’t know why. Good luck to everyone involved though. I was enjoying 901am so hopefully it stays the same with frequency and quality. It quickly became one of those start-up bookmarks each morning.

  1. […] It seems that David Krug has sold his latest media venture, 901am, to Splashpress Media. There was a short post on the newly acquired site with closed comments, but they have since been opened. J. Angelo Racoma posted on the Blog Herald, about the sale, and also letting everyone know that David Krug has been under the weather, and they all wish him well. […]
