AOL Editor to be Cut

The axe keeps falling at AOL.com. According to The New York Post, Cyndi Stivers, the site’s editor-in-chief, is out. Stivers joined AOL a mere eight months ago, when she departed Columbia Journalism Review.

The news of Stivers being let go comes one day after AOL dropped 20 staffers, mostly from the editorial side of AOL.com’s homepage.

When Stivers was hired in May, Chris Grosso, senior VP and general manager of AOL Homepages, wrote, “As we evolve AOL.com as a content destination, we will look to Cyndi to ensure the site showcases the most compelling stories relevant to our viewers and drive a distinctive editorial voice.”

We guess AOL will be looking to someone else to accomplish that goal from now on.
