(June 6, 2001) -- Excite@Home, Redwood City, Calif., announced today that it will close its media operations in France, Germany and Spain in July as it pares down its media business due to the weakened ad market. Excite UK and Excite Italia will continue to operate.

In addition, some of the other Excite-branded Web sites servicing European markets will close, though the company said the nove will not impact Excite@Home's portal operations in the UK and Italy or its portal joint ventures in Japan and Australia. -- Adrienne Mand
