Shake-up over at the Huffington Post: Betsy Morgan, who’s been CEO since 2007, will be replaced by Eric Hippeau, currently a HuffPo board member and an investment banker at SoftBank Capital. Hippeau, who will start later this week, has served as chairman and CEO of Ziff-Davis, and was an initial investor in Yahoo in 1995. Morgan spearheaded Huffington Post’s fundraising efforts when she succeeded Ken Lerer as CEO (the company brought in $25 million last year), but the company is reportedly seeking someone with more media experience.
