Emmis Communications Corp. has agreed to sell its Internet marketing subsidiary to Hailey, Idaho-based Marketron Broadcast Solutions LLC.

The Indianapolis-based media company announced the sale Tuesday. Terms of the transaction, set to close Oct. 31, were not divulged.

Emmis Interactive Inc. provides a content-management system, data-analytic tools and related services principally to radio operators.

Emmis said it will retain an economic interest in future revenue derived from some intellectual property developed by the former subsidiary.

Emmis Interactive had been operating at a loss and reported revenue for the 12 months ending Aug. 31 of $4.9 million, Emmis said.

The company once had high hopes for Emmis Interactive, which grew from one to 65 employees within four years of its 2002 founding, Emmis CEO Jeff Smulyan once told investors. Current employment was not disclosed.

The company said it will pay about $600,000 in severance costs to employees not retained by Marketron.

Emmis said the sale will allow the company to focus on the full commercialization of its FM analog/HD radio smart-phone application and the cloud-based platform that supplies data for the smart-phone application.

  1. Liberals do not understand that marriage is not about a law or a right ... it is a rite of religous faith. Liberals want "legal" recognition of their homosexual relationship ... which is OK by me ... but it will never be classified as a marriage because marriage is a relationship between a man and a woman. You can gain / obtain legal recognition / status ... but most people will not acknowledge that 2 people of the same sex are married. It's not really possible as long as marriage is defined as one man and one woman.

  2. That second phrase, "...nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens..." is the one. If you can't understand that you lack a fundamental understanding of the Constitution and I can't help you. You're blind with prejudice.

  3. Why do you conservatives always go to the marrying father/daughter, man/animal thing? And why should I keep my sexuality to myself? I see straights kissy facing in public all the time.

  4. I just read the XIV Amendment ... I read where no State shall deprive any person of life, liberty, or property ... nor make or enforce any law which shall abridge the privileges or immunitites of citizens ... I didn't see anything in it regarding the re-definition of marriage.

  5. I worked for Community Health Network and the reason that senior leadership left is because they were not in agreement with the way the hospital was being ran, how employees were being treated, and most of all how the focus on patient care was nothing more than a poster to stand behind. Hiring these analyst to come out and tell people who have done the job for years that it is all being done wrong now...hint, hint, get rid of employees by calling it "restructuring" is a cheap and easy way out of taking ownership. Indiana is an "at-will" state, so there doesn't have to be a "reason" for dismissal of employment. I have seen former employees that went through this process lose their homes, cars, faith...it is very disturbing. The patient's as well have seen less than disireable care. It all comes full circle.
