Fanhouse.com Officially Has Become Part Of SportingNews.com
Fanhouse.com this morning officially became part of SportingNews.com. Readers who entered the Fanhouse URL were automatically redirected to Sporting News’ home page. That site includes a banner underneath the news area with branded Fanhouse content from columnists Greg Couch, Lisa Olson, David Steele and David Whitley. Sporting News is owned by American City Business Journals, parent company of THE DAILY (THE DAILY).
Two AOL employees said that Kevin Blackistone, "by far the highest-profile Fanhouse writer, has spurned" the Sporting News-branded portal and "will not write under the new AOL sports arrangement" (SPORTSBYBROOKS.com, 2/27).
