A company that makes news for Google is looking to buy the company, The Wall Street Journal reported.
The search engine giant has been under pressure from the search advertising market and has been looking to trim costs to keep up with competitors.
Google News has been a key part of Google’s ad business, and has helped drive Google search revenue growth, and is currently valued at $2.5 billion.
Google’s CEO Sundar Pichai has made it clear that Google News should remain a standalone product.
The search giant said in a statement that it is looking for an independent buyer to help it continue to grow.
