Former CNN head Jeff Zucker has purchased the Crain Communications minority stake in Front Office Sports for an undisclosed price.
A Reuters story states, “The size of the investment was not disclosed. Bloomberg News reported the deal valued FOS at about $40 million. Most recently, it was valued at about $25 million when Crain Communications bought a minority stake in it in February last year.
“FOS declined to comment on deal terms and RedBird IMI did not immediately respond to Reuters’ requests for comment.

“FOS, which issues newsletters detailing different sports events and their business influence, said it has 35 million monthly reads for its newsletters.”
