New Yahoo Hires – Megan Liberman
Role at YHOO: Editor-in-chief of Yahoo News
Past: Deputy news editor of The New York Times
Another of Marissa Mayer’s new Yahoo hires was Megan Liberman. Hiring Megan Liberman was a recognition by Mayer that all the site functionality in the world doesn’t mean squat if there isn’t original content to attract them in the first place.
And attracting users will be a key piece to turning around YHOO stock in 2014.
Of course, Yahoo and news organizations have always had a love-hate relationship. The news world loves the traffic they get from Yahoo … but will no doubt hate competing against them for stories and, of course, ad dollars.
