Streamline Digital Inc., a division of Streamline Publishing Inc., has acquired the Radio Discussions message boards (www.radiodiscussions.com) from In3Media, operated by Diana Fleming. The popular boards were originally the discussion arm of In3Media's Radio-Info.com site, and were retained when In3Media sold Radio-Info.
Streamline Publishing CEO Jim Robinson said, "This is a perfect fit for Streamline's Radio Ink and RBR-TVBR news brands. These three strong individual businesses provide distinctly valuable content to our audiences, and effective environments for our marketing partners. We are dedicated to keeping readers current on news and the media conversations that are trending. The social interactivity of the discussion boards is the right complement to Radio Ink and RBR-TVBR."

B. Eric Rhoads, chairman and founder of Streamline Publishing, stated, "We're investing heavily to grow our digital services in the broadcasting industry to give the radio and television industries deeper sources of information, and to give our advertisers a platform with which to grow their businesses. These discussion boards attract significant amounts of traffic and give us the opportunity to offer wide reach across multiple interest groups and to offer geographic targeting."
Streamline Publishing, which earlier this year acquired Radio & Television Business Report, will expand the television section of the boards and encourage conversations about news and current events in the media industry. There are no plans to alter the boards' moderation policies or structure with the transition.
