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.
