/// Forbes Names Most Powerful Women in Media
Forbes has released its World’s 100 Most Powerful Women ranking, and once again, it includes a host of bigwigs in media—14 in all—spanning the TV, digital and print worlds. Most are the usual suspects (Oprah, Sheryl Sandberg, Anna Wintour), but there are some changes. New Time Inc. CEO Laura Lang made the list for the first time; and Jill Abramson , who ascended to job of The New York Times executive editor last year, moved up to the No. 5 spot (from 12 on last year's list). Dropping off the list since last year is fired Yahoo CEO Carol Bartz (37 last year) and exited Today show co-host Ann Curry (66 last year). Fifteen of the women on the list come from tech. They include Marissa Mayer, Google exec turned Yahoo CEO (No. 8), and former eBay CEO Meg Whitman (6), who returned to the business world last year to helm Hewlett-Packard.
