D.C. and New York-based Vox Media has just crossed into unicorn land.

The company, now valued at over $1 billion, announced Thursday a new partnership with NBCUniversal, which will make a $200 million strategic investment in the digital media company, which runs Vox, Polygon, The Verge and other sites. NBCUniversal’s parent company, Comcast, previously invested $200 million in Vox Media via its Comcast Ventures investment arm.

NBCUniversal is also reportedly planning to invest $200 million in BuzzFeed.
