BGR Sold For Millions, Owner's Name Finally Outed

Chances are you've never heard the name Jonathan Geller mentioned anywhere around the web, but if you are a cellphone geek or an avid reader of Geek-News.Net you've definitely heard of the site Boy Genius Report.

Geller is the brain child of the mobile technology news site most widely noted for regularly publishing leaked photos and specs of upcoming cellphones. As of today Geller is also reportedly a multimillionaire thanks to Mail.com Media Corporation (MMC) which bought BGR for an un-disclosed sum of money.

BGR has long been one of our favorite sites to checkout for the latest in cellphone news. In fact the site is one of the largest on the web averaging somewhere around a million visitors a month. And according to Jay Penske, the man behind Mail.com, the site is worth "multiple millions." Big kudos to Geller for his success in building one of the webs largest properties, and bigger kudos for cashing in on that success.

You can ready more about the acquisition as well as the full press release on BGR.com
