NEW YORK (AP) — The entertainment news and lifestyle service DailyCandy will close April 4 after 14 years, parent NBCUniversal said Thursday.
With handy alerts and tips across digital sites, DailyCandy covers a broad range of interest areas, including fashion, beauty, celebrities, food, parenting, and home design and decor. It was "no longer viable," according to a company statement.
DailyCandy was founded in 2000 by a New York writer, Dany Levy, and sold about eight years later.
The NBCUniversal statement said it was also closing the TV forum and review site Television Without Pity for the same reason, though the chat forums will remain open until May 31.
A total of 67 jobs will be affected, but NBCUniversal said it would try to absorb as many as possible.
