Population Statistic: Read. React. Repeat.
Monday, September 27, 2021

A couple of months after putting online mag Slate on the market, Microsoft may be close to selling it. New York Magazine’s Metro.com is reporting that the Washington Post Company is the likely suitor, in a bid to grab Slate’s high-minded readership.

It’d be a good match. I think the Post would be very likely to launch a print edition of Slate, as well; if they really wanted to exploit the brand, a physical product is the way to do it. One day, we might be seeing copies of Slate on coffeetables.

  1. WASHINGTON POST PICKS UP SLATE
    It took a while, but Microsoft managed to unload Slate Magazine, to the strongest suspected suitor: The Washington Post Company.

    The purchase price wasn’t announced, but I’m sure it’ll be leaked out soon. I’ll be curious to see how much scratch …
