Jimmy Pitaro, Yahoo’s general manager and vice president of media, appears set to leave the company.
Pitaro has been working to develop the portal’s original content – in a push similar to the one in the works at AOL and, to a lesser extend, MSN.
Pitaro did not immediately return a phone call and e-mail message seeking comment.
Just last week, Pitaro appeared at TheWrap’s first annual Grill conference (alongside MSN U.S. executive producer Scott Moore) talking about the company’s content strategy.
At a Goldman Sachs investment conference last week, Yahoo chief Carol Bartz downplay the departures, but admitted, “There are a few more we’re going to lose.”
UPDATE: Pitaro said he cannot comment on the rumors. For the moment, it appears he's still a Yahoo.
