Mediate: Huff Post Will Handle All Aol Original News Content

DULLES, VA - NOVEMBER 29: (FILE PHOTO) Signs i...Image by Getty Images via @daylifeA little more than two months after America Online and Huffington Post announced their merger (see "TUOL" post 2/7/11), Mediaite.com is reporting that Aol News will forego producing original content, leaving that task to Huff Post staffers.

Aol has yet to respond to the Mediaite post. Mediaite reported that included among the jobs pared by Aol last month (see "TUOL" post 3/10/11) were a previously undisclosed 120 editorial staffers. If Mediaite's story is borne out, it remains to be seen whether the "Aol News" brand, such as it is, will continue to have an online presence, even if it is being overseen and created by Huffington Posters.
