The BookSeller is reporting that it's going to be sold:
Media research company Nielsen has agreed "in principle" to sell The Bookseller to its managing director Nigel Roby. Negotiations are expected to conclude at the end of April. All the editorial, sales and marketing and events teams will remain in place.
Roby said: "It will be an enormous privilege to take over The Bookseller and become a part of its 152-year history. The UK publishing industry is a world-beater and it is incredibly important that The Bookseller is a vibrant part of it. "At a time of great change for the book industry, all of us here are looking forward to continuing the development of the magazine and its internet and event offerings."
