Pittman Out At AOL

from the hello,-Time-Warner-people dept

It’s been rumored for months that Bob Pittman was on his way out at AOL-Time Warner after he got passed over for the CEO spot. Today (the day after Pittman was mentioned as playing a major role in some of the questionable accounting at AOL), he finally resigned. Not surprisingly, two Time Warner execs have been promoted to fill his vacancy – showing that Time Warner is doing everything to spit out the old AOL ways. Now, the question is whether or not that will lead to a better AOL – or are they going to do something silly like reintroduce Time Warner’s failed Pathfinder service.
