DailyCandy and Television Without Pity, two high-profile Internet content properties owned by NBCUniversal, are being shuttered, a move that management told staff this morning would be occurring next week.

Local recommendations site DailyCandy had been purchased by the Comcast media unit in 2008 for $125 million from the New York-based Pilot Group. The sassy TWoP TV review and recap site — its motto is "Spare the snark, spoil the networks" — was purchased by NBCU's Bravo cable unit in 2007. Both were founded in the Web 1.0 era.

Attempts to sell the properties were made, but apparently were unsuccessful.

CNBC's parent NBC Universal is an investor in Re/code's parent Revere Digital, and the companies have a content-sharing arrangement.
