The Ringer and Bill Simmons get a second chance with Vox


On June 17, 2017, Eric Jackson predicted that Bill Simmons’ The Ringer would be worth $100M in an acquisition by 2018.

“Two years ago, Bill Simmons was hunkered down at his house in LA fielding calls from the who’s who of the media world wanting him to join their organization.

Fox. Yahoo. Showtime. They all wanted the “Boston Sports Guy” to join their team after being unceremoniously fired by ESPN.

Fast forward to today.”

Update: Spotify acquired for $200M+ in early 2020.
