The online division of Salem Media Group has purchased the app Instapray, the company announced Thursday.
Salem, a conservative and Christian broadcast and publishing company in Camarillo, did not disclose the price paid for Instapray, which allows users to post and share prayer requests and receive notifications when others are praying about their requests.
The acquisition was made through the company’s Salem Web Network division in Richmond, Va.
“We are pleased to have Instapray join our mobile audience and to be able to take the app to its next level of growth,” Rick Killingsworth, executive vice president for Salem Web Network, said in a statement. “By leveraging our existing audience and resources, we can provide an even greater tool for people to come together in prayer and encouragement.”
Salem Media shares closed down 6 cents, or 1 percent, to $5.51 on the Nasdaq.
