Univision One of Two Bidders for Gawker: Report

UPDATE: Univision Wins Bidding for Gawker Media

Univision Communications is reportedly one of two bidders for Gawker, the online media company forced into bankruptcy after losing a lawsuit over posting a sex tape featuring wrestler Hulk Hogan.

Univision is trying to outbid Ziff Davis, which is offering $90 million, according to Bloomberg. A Univision spokesperson had no comment.

If Univision acquired Gawker, it would be the latest in a series of digital properties the TV company has bought. It acquired the humor site The Onion and The Root, a new site for African Americans.
