AXS, the digital ticketing and media company owned by AEG, has acquired Examiner.com. Examiner.com was launched in 2008 and is a leading content creation network that connects consumers to influencers. Examiner receives over 40 million unique visitors per month.
AXS.com will have the ability to populate original content into their platform. “The experience will couple the power of the thousands of ‘Examiners’ writing each day about live events, with AXS.com’s ticketing platform and AEG’s insider access to events to create a one of a kind destination ? uniquely focused on the live experience ? both the content and the commerce,” said the company in a statement.
Examiner.com CEO Ashish Kapur will become SVP of Content at AXS.com. Every month, 10,000 “Examiners” create over 70,000 articles.
