On July 29, 2015, WorldNow announced its sale to Frankly, a San Francisco-based provider of white label social media services and mobile messaging apps. The deal was valued at $45 million, which included Raycom Media taking a 20% stake in Frankly. As a result of the sale, Gary Gannaway left the company.
