Winamp, the popular music player of the late ‘90s and early 2000s, was supposed to shut down on December 21st, but it has lived on into 2014. Following rumors of a potential Microsoft acquisition, Radionomy confirms that it has acquired the media player from its owner AOL along with Shoutcast, an internet radio broadcasting service that AOL also owned. The precise details of the deal are not public, but the Belgian publication De Tijd reports that AOL took a partial stake in Radionomy as part of a recent funding round. It has around 6,000 user-programmed radio stations with 13 million unique listeners.
