MERA Buys Mobile Electronics Magazine
Mobile Electronics Retailers Association (MERA) has purchased Mobile Electronics Magazine from Bobit Business Media, the association announced Monday. The deal includes the me-mag.com website and its Hotwire alerts.
MERA Executive Director Chris Cook was the editor of the magazine previously. Terms of the purchase were not disclosed.
“With an industry that is positioned for significant growth in 2011 and beyond, MERA was happy to make the investment in Mobile Electronics Magazine in order to build on its success,” Cook said in a statement. “Although the magazine will have independent leadership, MERA funding will be available and there is a clear goal of getting back to monthly publications along with a stronger web presence.”
