Gawker is Coming Back in 2019
Gawker is coming back in 2019, as reported by Variety.
No word yet on what exactly the gossip website will look like in 2019, but we do know it’s under the new ownership of Bryan Goldberg, founder and CEO of Bustle Digital Group. Goldberg was the winning bidder at $1.35 million for Gawker Media in July.
As you may recall, Gawker was sued into bankruptcy over the release of a sex tape of Hulk Hogan with his best friend’s wife. It was later revealed that Silicon Valley billionaire Peter Thiel was bankrolling the lawsuit.
