AOL’s Newsroom Is Now Larger Than NYT’s

Business Insider:

Here’s a startling statistic about the enormous bet AOL is making on content:

AOL’s newsroom is now bigger than the New York Times’.

Come again?

AOL’s news and content operation now has three main parts: Huffington Post, Patch, and the legacy AOL brands and sites. At last count, Patch had about 800 editorial staffers, Huffpo about 200, and the rest of AOL about 300.

Add all those together and you get ~1,300, which is more than the New York Times’ ~1,200.
