San Francisco—Tech news site PandoDaily last week announced an agreement to acquire NSFWCORP from its owner, Paul Carr. Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Carr and four full-time staffers will join PandoDaily, with Carr becoming the editor of a new investigative reporting unit.
The acquisition moves PandoDaily into print publishing for the first time with PandoQuarterly, a restyled version of NSFWCORP’s subscriber-only monthly magazine. “The first relaunched issue, published next month, will contain three times the content of the old NSFWCORP print, with far improved paper stock; way more illustrations and photography; and a revamped digital version,” Carr wrote on nsfwcorp.com.
PandoDaily and NSFWCORP increasingly were covering the same editorial ground, and a recent reader survey showed significant audience overlap, Carr wrote.
