Just a Touch of Excitement As Window Media’s Dead Newspaper Get Sold Off for $27K

Is gay media really worth this little? Or do no deeper pockets want to own the trademarks (and archives) of Window Media’s failed publications? Swooping in with a $9,000 bid at Window/Unite’s bankruptcy auction, the publishers of Atlanta’s Gaydar magazine went home with what’s left of Southern Voice and David magazine, relays Project Q, beating out the $8,000 offer from Southern Voice ex-pats Chris Cash and Laura Douglas-Brown, who are now behind the startup GA Voice.

Also sold: The Washington Blade (to the D.C. Agenda‘s Kevin Naff, Lynne Brown, and Brian Pitts) for $15k; $3,200 for the South Florida Blade, GenreMagazine.com, and 411 (to Hotspots publisher Peter Brown) — bringing the total worth of Window’s debt-laden assets to $27,200.

The federal Small Business Administration, which lent millions of taxpayer dollars to David Unger when he ran Window, will receive nothing from the sale.
