    Primedia is selling to competitor

    The AP reports:
    NEW YORK Magazine publisher Primedia Inc. is selling its hunting, fishing and outdoor titles, including Guns & Ammo and Game & Fish, to private equity firm InterMedia Partners LP for $170 million in cash.

    The deal announced Thursday includes 17 publications and related Web sites, TV and radio programming and events.

    Primedia has sold off a number of its other magazines in recent years, including New York, American Baby, Chicago and Modern Bride.

    The investment firm Kohlberg Kravis Roberts & Co. owns about 60 percent of Primedia. Leo Hindery Jr., a former senior executive in the cable industry, is co-managing partner of InterMedia.

    Shares in New York-based Primedia ended unchanged at $1.52 on the New York Stock Exchange.
    According to Michael Bane's blog says that:
    Well, what's really interesting is InterMedia is a part-owner of The Sportsmen's Channel, a competitor to The Outdoor Channel, where most of Primedia's television product resides.
    I guess I've got letters to write because we don't get the Sportsman's channel and I get some good info from some of guns and ammo tv programing.
