Fox Interactive Media Invests In SimplyHired, Levinsohn To Join Board

The vertical search space continues to attract interest from major media companies. This morning, SimplyHired announced it raised $13.5m from Fox Interactive Media (FIM) and Foundation Capital.

FIM represents the interactive assets of Rupert Murdoch’s News Corporation, which made a splash last year by purchasing MySpace. In total, FIM properties reach aproximately 70 million unique visitors a month.

Ross Levinsohn, FIM’s president, will join the SimplyHired board of directors.
