Winamp and Shoutcast sold to Radionomy by AOL

AOL originally announced plans to sell off Winamp and Shoutcast but has instead decided to sell them to a Belgian company called Radionomy. The company, based in Brussels, is an international aggregator of online radio stations that has over 6,000 stations in its catalog already.

Some more detail on the fate of Winamp and Shoutcast, the legacy digital music services that owner AOL (which also owns TechCrunch) originally planned to shut down but then halted pending a sale. They are not being bought by Microsoft, as we had heard when we first reported news of a sale. The properties are instead being acquired by Radionomy — an international aggregator of online radio stations headquartered in Brussels, Belgium.
