Sony To Sell Gracenote To Tribune

Sony has entered into an agreement to sell all of the shares of Gracenote, Inc., which is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Sony Corporation of America, to Tribune for $170 million subject to standard adjustments.

Gracenote maintains a database of music data that?s used by streaming media services, mobile apps and in-car entertainment systems for finding and recommending tracks and providing information about them to listeners. Apple and Spotify are among its customers.
