NewBay Media, LLC is a magazine and website publisher founded in 2006 and headquartered in New York City.[1]

NewBay Media serves five marketplaces — Music, Pro Audio/AV, Video & Broadcast, Consumer Electronics, and Education. NewBay connects and informs millions of constituents in these markets through award-winning content, integrated media capabilities, and high-profile network-building, informative events. Their reach provides marketing partners with exciting, engaging, and effective targeted communities, and connects them with decision makers and influencers across these markets.[2]


In September 2006, NewBay Media (as an affiliate of The Wicks Group of Companies) acquired CMP Entertainment Media from United Business Media which yielded Guitar Player, Bass Player, Keyboard, Pro Sound News, Systems Contractor News, Residential Systems, Videography, Government Video, DV, Technology & Learning, and Television Broadcast.[3]

In 2007, NewBay Media acquired IMAS Publishing which yielded TV Technology, Radio World, Pro Audio Review, Audio Media, and some regional editions.[4]

In 2009, Reed Business Information sold TWICE, Broadcasting & Cable, and Multichannel News to NewBay Media.[5]

In early 2011, NewBay Media announced that it had acquired "Mix," "Electronic Musician," "Radio," and "Sound & Video Contractor" magazines from Penton Media.[6]

In 2012, NewBay Media bought the Music division of Future US.[7]

In late 2012, NewBay Media acquired U.K.-based Intent Media (which was originally formed from the purchase of IP from United Business Media), including brands such as PSNEurope, TVBEurope, MCV, Installation, and ToyNews. NewBay Media wanted to acquire these brands because of their strong market positioning and their historical links to the Reed Business Information purchases, as Pro Sound News was, prior to the spin off from UBM, sister magazine to PSNEurope (or Pro Sound News Europe).
