Breitbart.com Retools Its Management Team

Breitbart.com is doing its best to stay relevant in the face of the death of its charismatic founder Andrew Breitbart. Politico reports that the conservative web network has retooled its management team. Politico reports that former Breitbart News Network board member Steve Bannon has been appointed executive chairman of the organization, while former president and COO Laurence Solov has taken over Breitbart’s role as CEO.

“We are continuing,” Solov told Politico. “Andrew and I had a vision for this company. Andrew was very clear with this vision, and I shared this vision, and I’m going to make sure that the company continues to pursue it.”

Conservative media is big money. No shortage of aspiring oligarchs looking to shell out for self-serving news. So we’re pretty confident the site will do just fine financially. Whether or not they can have the same cultural impact without Breitbart is an open question.
