Report: News Corp. Shopping Beliefnet
News Corp. is looking to unload religion and spirituality website Beliefnet, according to Kara Swisher of AllThingsD. The site hosts blogs written by several Christian writers, including Scot McKnight, Rod Dreher, and Ben Witherington.
Beliefnet was founded in 1999 by Steve Waldman, who left Beliefnet late last year, and Robert Nylen, who died in 2008. The site was purchased in 2007 for an undisclosed sum by News Corp.’s Fox Entertainment Group. CT covered its inception almost a decade ago.
