Women’s Agenda publisher Angela Priestley has purchased the website from Crikey publisher Private Media, in the third such buyout in recent months.

Last year, publisher Jonathan Chancellor took over Property Observer, after a protracted sales process failed to find another buyer for the property website. A few months later, veteran arts journalist Ray Gill took over Daily Review, the arts website he edited, which was originally launched as a companion site to Crikey. 

Women’s Agenda was launched in 2012 with Priestley as editor and now-Bauer exec Marina Go as publisher. The website aimed to fill a gap in websites catering to women by focusing on professional women. Its current editor is Jane Gilmore, the founder of the now-defunct King’s Tribune. But Private Media chairman Eric Beecher told staff this afternoon Gilmore would be leaving the business as a result of the sale.

Private Media’s remaining websites are Crikey, The Mandarin, aimed at senior public servants, and business websites SmartCompany and StartupSmart.
