AOL Time Warner has unveiled plans to change its organizational structure. The company is expected to divide its operations into two units managed by directors from the Time Warner side of the company. The resignation of chief operating officer Robert Pittman last week means that company chairman Steve Case is the only former AOL executive left on the AOL Time Warner board.
AOL Time Warner is to split its core business activities into two units. America Online, Time Magazine, Time Warner Cable and AOL Time Warner Book Group will form the company’s Media and Communications unit, which will be fronted by Don Logan. HBO, New Line Cinema, Turner Networks, WB Network, Warner Bros. Music Studio and Warner Music will form the company’s Entertainment and Network Group. Jeff Bewkes will manage the Entertainment and Network business unit.
