Germantown Pulse Purchased by Western MD Media Inc. in $14.6 Million Deal


As the second quarter of 2019 begins it is being released that Germantown Pulse — the news and information website — has reached a deal to sell all brand assets to the Flintstone, Md.-based Western MD (WMD) Media Group Inc. for a deal worth $14.6 million.

The deal would turn over all assets of Germantown Pulse to Western Md Media, which owns several other digital media websites throughout the Maryland panhandle including; The Barrelville Rim, The Accident Happens, The Friendsville Busybody, The Wolfsville Howler, The Buckeystown Bucker, and The Funkstown Stink, as well as the flagship The Flintstone Bedrock.

“The coverage and in-depth analysis of local issues that the Germantown Pulse has been doing since its inception has been something that we would be proud to have in our stable of brands,” said Lou Grant, news manager for WMD. “The lack of typos found in Germentown Pulse was the thing that first drew our attention to the Pluse.”

Germantown Pulse began as a small hyper-local news site in 2014 covering Germantown and quickly expanded to include areas surrounding Germantown such as Boyds, South Germantown, Germantown Park, Northern Germantown, and Clarksburg.
