SKG to merge YNN broadcast content with services for education market
News | 11/15/2000 5:00 am EST
SKG Interactive Inc is removing advertising from its recently acquired Youth News Network (YNN), as part of a new business model that should appease critics of the school news service and drive students, parents and teachers to its new educational portal. The Richmond Hill-ON company purchased the youth broadcast service earlier this month when it acquired Montreal-based Athena Educational Partners Inc. The transaction is expected to be worth $2.7 million in an all-stock deal scheduled to close by Nov. 30.
