The assets of Frank Gari Productions and Gari Communications in Westlake Village have been acquired by a unit of Warner Music Group.

Gari owns catalogs of music for television newscasts, including the Eyewitness News theme, and the NBC Collection heard on local news broadcasts in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago and other markets.

They were acquired by Warner/Chappell Production Music, a Nashville company with a diverse catalog of music for television dramas, films, media companies, commercials and professional sports.

“I look forward to offering our clients an even wider array of first-class music, and to working with the talented Gari team to soundtrack fantastic television,” said Warner/Chappell Chief Executive Randy Wachtler in a prepared statement.

Terms of the deal announced this week were not disclosed.
