AOL hired one, but cut 20. On the heels of the company hiring Brian Balthazar away from HGTV, Capital New York reports that AOL has cut about 20 staffers, mostly from the editorial side of AOL.com’s homepage.
AOL, of course, doesn’t comment on dropping people because it’s not exactly a fun thing to talk about. Instead, it issued this statement to Capital:
We are working hard to make sure AOL.com remains a valuable and meaningful product for its millions of daily viewers. It will continue to evolve in 2014 – showcasing stories from our brands and partners that inform people as their day unfolds.
