Light Reading buys "RCR Wireless" database.

Light Reading (New York), a publishing, events and research company for the global communications industry and a unit of TechWeb and United Business Media, has acquired the "RCR Wireless News" database of 60,000 qualified email addresses

"RCR Wireless News" was described as the "leading print publication in the mobile space" until the title was closed in March. It was launched in 1981 and published 40 times a year by Crain Communications (Golden, CO) for the wireless communications industry. Light Reading said it plans to use the list to help promote the growth of webinars, events and web site produced by Unstrung, Light Reading's resource on wireless communications technologies, and for research services from TechWeb units Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research.

As a self-proclaimed authority on 4G networks, Unstrung editorial includes news and commentary on industry trends from Heavy Reading and Pyramid Research analysts. Light Reading said it was in discussions with RCR editors about writing for the site and contributing news and analysis on the wireless industry. Light Reading said it will also offer the former "RCR Wireless" audience a range of media products for the global mobile industry, including research on LTE/4G technology and mobile trends, reports on broadband technology and applications, expositions and conferences, and two trade shows.

The RCR Wireless brand was sold by Crain to Arden Media (Austin, TX), the producer of job boards for the global wireless and telecommunications industry and "Tech&Jobs Magazine," a new digital title that mixes industry job and opportunity information with editorial on such topics as new technologies, expos and conventions, managing talent, becoming a project manager and networking.
