Sharon Carty Named Editor of Yahoo Autos

From Autoblog to Autos.

Yahoo has named Sharon Carty editor-in-chief of its recently launched, single-focus site Yahoo Autos. Carty comes to Yahoo from AOL, where she served as editor-in-chief of Autoblog. Carty has covered the auto industry since 2002.

Carty will lead a Yahoo Autos team that already includes managing editor Justin Hyde, editor-at-large Alex Lloyd and road test editor Aki Sugawara.

“We continue to add dynamic editors to our growing digital magazines and we’re thrilled to have Sharon Carty join the Yahoo Autos team,” said Susan Kittenplan, VP and executive editor of Yahoo’s new media initiatives, in a blog post. “Sharon’s deep experience in the auto industry coupled with her background in digital media makes her a perfect leader for the team.”
