a few hours after i posted about the email i got from dominic rivera, an official announcement was made on the website itself.
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.
unfortunately there has been no word so far from david krug. david is the founder of 901am, the one who hired me after i resigned from the blog herald, and has been a dear friend to me ever since. the blog herald has, however, released the following statement on behalf of splashpress media:
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.
get well soon krug. we miss you and wish you a quick recovery.
