Yahoo Shuts Down Four Entertainment Blogs
Yahoo has shut down The Projector, The Set, The Amplifier and The Famous, four blogs covering television, movie, music and celebrity topics, respectively.
The blogs announced the news on their Twitter accounts, adding that “other blogs” will be shut down as well.
“As was just announced, Yahoo has decided to let @YahooProjector shuffle off this mortal coil. It’s a damn shame: We were having such fun,” tweeted The Projector‘s co-editor Will Leitch.
Some of the editors involved even managed to muster a joke. “Starting to think that this giant purple Y! tattoo I got last year wasn’t the best idea. #maw,” tweeted Mark Lisanti one of the managing editors of Yahoo’s entertainment blogs.
This latest move could simply be Yahoo getting rid of properties that haven’t been performing well, but it could also mean the company is shedding extra pounds, preparing for a takeover from one of (reportedly) many interested parties.
