After Breitbart: New Team to Lead News Network

A new team is in place to lead Andrew Breitbart’s network of websites following his death earlier this month.

Stephen Bannon, radio talk host and director and producer of the Sarah Palin doc “Undefeated,” will serve as executive chairman of Breitbart News Network, while Laurence Solov steps in as CEO and president.

The Breitbart News Network is the parent company of Breitbart.com, which includes BigHollywood.com and other “Big” sites like BigGovernment.com.

Breitbart had been working on a revamp of his Breitbart.com site at the time of his death, and it was officially relaunched on March 5.

Solov is a former partner at Katchen Muchin Rosenman, and served as outside counsel of Breitbart.com until 2007, when he became business partners in the web venture. “Andrew possessed a very specific vision of what he wanted our company to become,” Solov said in a statement. “I share that vision, which the company will pursue relentlessly.”

Bannon has been on the board of Breitbart News since it was started. He’s a former M&A investment banker at Goldman Sachs, and was recently chairman and CEO of IMI Exchange.

Since August, Joel Pollak has served as editor in chief and Alex Marlow as managing editor of the news network. Ben Shapiro was named editor at large.

Pollak said that they will continue one of Breitbart’s porjects, “The Vetting,” focusing on President Obama, his rivals and the mainstream media in the 2012 presidential race.
