LONDON (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — As AOL reorganizes in the wake of their acquisition of the online aggregator site The Huffington Post, they've announced that they are shuttering their primary music and sports websites in the U.K. – AOL Music and FanHouse.
According to digital news website paidContent, the closures are part of a consolidation plan that will see the company merge 53 content sites into 20. AOL Music UK's site will redirect to other sites that are a part of AOL's online network. FanHouse will be discontinued.
The U.S. version of the FanHouse sports site shuttered in January, with AOL outsourcing their sports news while AOL Music survived, while absorbing other AOL music offerings, including The Boombox, Noise Creep, Sessions, Shoutcast, Spinner, The Boot and Winamp.
According to paidContent, AOL does not plan to close additional sites. – CelebrityAccess Staff Writers
