Gerdeen Dyer, founding editor of PNB, has confirmed that he is open to selling, the industry's premium URL. "The older I get, the more I feel I need to concentrate on other projects," said Dyer, a journalist who has written extensively outside the pageant field. He founded the Pageant News Bureau in 1995 along with other journalists, and is its principal owner.

Dyer, one of the most quoted experts on beauty contests, said the industry remains fascinating, but with the evolution of entertainment media, might be better as a corporate clearinghouse than  a news site.

Asked how much  he would expect to get for the URL, Dyer replied, "A lot, of course. The best buyer would a big media enterprise. Fortunately, I don't have to rush into anything, but my advisers say it's a good time to sell major Web property."
