AOL HuffPo Snags Vanity Fair Digital Editor Michael Hogan

Another big, presumably very expensive, hire for AOL HuffPo. The megasite has apparently lured Vanity Fair executive digital editor Michael Hogan to become their new executive features editor, as well as to take control of both Movie Phone and AOL TV. He’ll be the EIC of both ventures. He seems particularly excited about the former.

“I’m hoping that I’ll be able to persuade Russ ‘Mr. Moviefone’ Leatherman to record my outgoing voicemail message,” Hogan said in the release.

Hogan had been with Vanity Fair since 1998 and VF.com’s editor since 2008.
