/// Exclusive: AOL Poised to Hire Susan Lyne to Run All Content Brands, Except HuffPo
Sources said AOL is set to hire well-known media and Internet exec Susan Lyne to be CEO of its content brands unit at the New York-based Web company, except for the Huffington Post media unit headed by Arianna Huffington. Lyne has most recently been chairman of the Gilt Groupe and was CEO previous to that. She will retain her board role at the online retailer, but is likely to give up her director role at AOL. She is set to be on its executive operating committee going forward. Lyne has had a long and varied career in media and is a high-profile hire. Beside Gilt, she also ran Martha Stewart Omnimedia and was a top network exec at ABC.
