Lee Enterprises-owned developer TownNews has bought the Rayos and Rivista CMS products from GTxcel.

Seven GTxcel staff members will join TownNews, which is based in Moline, Illinois.

In addition to technology and expertise, the acquisition adds more than 200 broadcast and magazine clients to TownNews' customer base of nearly 1800 newspaper, television, radio, magazine and web-native properties.

Chief executive Brad Ward says the deal "furthers the goal" of helping customers power audience engagement and drive revenue.

"It also strengthens our position in the broadcast market while significantly expanding our magazine business."

The Rayos suite is used by more than 20 TV companies to create and deliver multimedia content to their websites, apps and other platforms, while Rivista has a base of 175 magazine publishers.

Ward says the WordPress-based Rayos platform - with its broadcast-specific

features and customisations - will team well with their Field59 live streaming platform.
