Brandon Holley… She’s So Yahoo!

1218holley.jpgWhile noone was looking, ex-Jane EIC Brandon Holley landed a gig running a content division for Yahoo!. Holley is executive producer for Yahoo Lifestyles and is in charge of the site’s food, health, astrology, tech and green editorial content. Mediaweek, who broke the story, has the scoop:

Contacted at Yahoo, Holley said she couldn’t comment on her new position. But a Yahoo spokesperson confirmed that she has oversight for Yahoo’s food, health, astrology, tech and green editorial content and is expected to oversee forthcoming launches in other content areas. Holley reports to Amy Iorio, general manager, vp, Yahoo Lifestyles.

Although a proper stateside Yahoo! Lifestyles site isn’t publicly viewable as of yet, Yahoo! Canada has slowly been testing the concept out. It’s very Martha Stewarty.
