Jerry Yang Steps Down as Yahoo’s CEO

As anticipated, Jerry Yang, the co-founder and current CEO of troubled internet search giant Yahoo is stepping down as the company’s chief exec.

No word yet on an official replacement, but Meg Whitman‘s name is floating around.

Jerry Yang, co-founder of Yahoo and its CEO since June 2007, is stepping down from the Chief Executive spot as soon as a yet-to-be-named successor is appointed. Yang will be staying with the company in the role of “Chief Yahoo” and maintaining a seat on the company’s board of directors.
