Mashable Is Firing Employees as Website Shifts Focus to Video

  • Top editor, advertising executive leave as part of shake-up
  • Former Turner Broadcasting official named top revenue officer

Mashable Inc. is firing an unspecified number of employees as the Internet media company shifts its focus to video entertainment from politics and world news.

Executive Editor Jim Roberts, formerly with the New York Times, and ex-Times advertising executive Seth Rogin, Mashable’s chief revenue officer, are leaving as part of a reorganization, the company said in a statement Thursday. Mashable employs 325 people globally.
