Talking Points Memo’s Andrew Golis To Head Up New Political Blog For Yahoo

Andrew Golis

Left-leaning political blog Talking Points Memo (TPM) is losing its deputy publisher, Andrew Golis. Golis is headed over to Yahoo (NSDQ: YHOO), where he’ll head up the company’s news and blog aggregation efforts as editor of a soon-to-launch political blog.

To be clear, a Yahoo rep said the company wasn’t launching a new politics vertical or a new site, maintaining that his hire is part of the company’s efforts to “ramp up” its original content. The move is actually a bit a fair trade between the two companies: Earlier this year, Diane Rinaldo, director of Yahoo’s political advertising unit, left to join TPM as VP of sales.
