AOL Still Hiring Journos As It Cuts Staff

aol logo.jpgYesterday AOL revealed that it was looking to cut one-third of its staff as it heads towards its spin off from parent company Time Warner and looks to trim $300 million from its annual operating costs.

“AOL is still hiring for some positions that [CEO Tim Armstrong] has pinpointed as essential to its growth, such as journalists.”

All of those journalists losing their jobs from places like BusinessWeek and the Associated Press may have a new place to work.
