Prince Frederick, MD (PRWEB) June 26, 2014
Following their acquisition of HighBridge Audio, leading digital-content provider Recorded Books has bolstered its already substantial offerings to the library market with an extended catalog of high-quality titles.
The acquisition provides Recorded Books, as well as subsidiaries W.F. Howes and Wavesound, with a substantial addition of titles, including works from bestselling author Garrison Keillor, Life of Pi author Yann Martell, George Lucas (the Star Wars saga), and National Public Radio (NPR).
Recorded Books president and CEO Rich Freese said, “HighBridge Audio is a truly wonderful addition to the Recorded Books portfolio. The acquisition brings Recorded Books a very strong presence across all channels, which complements and improves our capacity to deliver the best and most exciting content to our markets.”
To capitalize on the value and prestige of the HighBridge brand, Recorded Books will retain HighBridge Audio as an imprint. HighBridge’s former sister company, Algonquin Books, will continue to license audio rights of select titles to HighBridge.
