Yahoo! News Executive Editor Heads to Hearst

Yahoo!'s executive editor and general manager of news is heading to Hearst. Neeraj Khemlani will become Heart's VP of Digital Media.

Khemlani is one of many Yahoo! execs to leave in the past year. Though, most of his former colleagues have ended up at Microsoft.

Most recently, Larry Heck, vice president of search and advertising sciences departed for Microsoft. Prior to that, Sean Suchter, Qi Lu, and Scott Moore gave up their purple people status for digs at the Redmond-based software giant.
