Broadcast group Townsquare Media announced this week it's expanding its portfolio of music and entertainment-focused web properties with the addition of six online communities.

The deal has Townsquare acquiring indie rock site Pretty Much Amazing, music and pop culture site Dangerous Minds, and social publishing platform and female-focused entertaiment community Wetpaint. Townsquare has also added Consequence of Sound, Potholes in My Blog, and Tiny Mix Tapes.

Townsquare owns and operates 241 radio stations, over 250 companion websites, an e-commerce business called SeizeTheDeal.com, and stages approximately 500 annual live events in small and medium-sized U.S. markets. The company says its collection of music and entertainment sites already attracts over 50 million U.S. monthly unique visitors.

In June Townsquare acquired former AOL assets The Boot, The BoomBox, NoiseCreep, and ComicsAlliance, as reported in RAIN here.
