AOL Editorial Team Loses Some More Key Personnel

Less than two weeks removed from losing four leading editors and reporters, AOL hit another roadblock yesterday with five more departures from their writing team.  Dan Frommer reported the following changes at AOL:

Senior beauty editor Laura Kenney and style news editor Susannah Cahn are leaving AOL’s StyleList

Jennifer Fields is vacating her post as senior editor at AOL Health

 AOL Music will lose editor/journalist Jessica Robertson to MTV

Eric Scottberg is no longer senior editor of Lemondrop

A representative from AOL attempted to make sense of these recent exits with the following statement:

“We’re equal parts media company and technology company. And we are focused on building high quality content sites at scale. We think the strategy of the future for content and journalism in the digital age requires that. We are a growing and dynamic organization and are a net importer of talent.”
