We’re again hearing murmurings that a potential sale of trade magazine Pollstar to Oak View Group is very close to being finalized, wrapping up a transaction that has been months in the making.

The deal — negotiated by OVG’s Tim Leiweke and Gary Smith and Gary Bongiovanni from Pollstar — would be the latest in a string of acquisitions that include last year’s purchase of Venues Today.

Sources are telling us that momentum is pushing the deal close to the finish line and that an announcement should be forthcoming. We’re keeping a close eye on it and will keep you posted.
