Martha Nelson Now Heads All Media for Yahoo

Martha Nelson
According to an internal memo that went out last week, Martha Nelson has officially been designated the head of all media for Yahoo, including having purview over its video content efforts.

Re/Code reports the former top editor at Time Inc., who arrived at the Silicon Valley Internet giant in August as global editor-in-chief and is also an SVP there, now reports directly to CEO Marissa Mayer.
