Here are a  few items from the Marketplace desk of “Wait, your company is worth how much?” media edition.

We learned Wednesday that NBC Universal, among the oldest of old-line media companies, is taking a big stake in a couple of not old-line media companies.

$200 million in Vox Media, which values Vox at more than a cool billion dollars.

Also, there are reports of another $200 million going into BuzzFeed — which puts it at a billion and a half.

 

If you’re a member of your local public radio station, we thank you — because your support helps those stations keep programs like Marketplace on the air.  But for Marketplace to continue to grow, we need additional investment from those who care most about what we do: superfans like you.

Your donation — as little as $5 — helps us create more content that matters to you and your community, and to reach more people where they are – whether that’s radio, podcasts or online.

When you contribute directly to Marketplace, you become a partner in that mission: someone who understands that when we all get smarter, everybody wins.

We’re here for you.
