Lonely Planet Publishing Sold

Lonely Planet, the iconic Australian publisher of travel guides has been sold to the commercial division of the BBC in a deal reportedly worth $A200 million. BBC Worldwide aims to expand the business by branching out into magazines and television programs, though it is not expected that the editorial guidelines for the books will change in any significant way. The publishing business will remain at its current Footscray location under the same management.
