Confirmed: BusinessWeek on the block

It's no rumor: McGraw-Hill is definitely shopping BusinessWeek. Now who wants to buy it?

The news-and-information conglomerate just issued a statement more or less confirming this morning's report by Bloomberg that it is ready to part ways with the 80-year-old business magazine. This was the company's statement:

The McGraw-Hill Companies (MHP) today announced that it is exploring strategic options for BusinessWeek. BusinessWeek is a globally respected brand and one of the world's leading sources of essential and trusted content that informs and inspires business leaders to make smarter decisions in their professional and personal lives.
