The end is near, very near for Gawker.com..
The decade and a half old website will shut down next week, according to a post on Gawker.com.
Univision on Tuesday agreed to buy the six other sites that make up Gawker Media for $135 million but the broadcaster did not plan to operate the flagship site. Gawker founder Nick Denton told staff about the shuttering of the website on Thursday, according to Gawker.com. There will be a bankruptcy court hearing later on Thursday to approve Univision’s bid. h/t thr
