“We haven’t made any decisions yet about which areas across the company are going to be impacted,” Williams told PRWeek. “At a corporate level we haven’t communicated any decisions about where those cost-reductions will be made. But certainly corporate communications is a part of the company and therefore we’re participating in the top-to-bottom business review that’s going on.”
Williams went on to say it would seem “frivolous” to talk about Yahoo’s PR team when the company itself is amid such troubles. “It’s like interviewing a fireman during a fire,” he added.
Another member of Yahoo's communications team told PRWeek via e-mail, "We haven't received any details. We've only heard what everyone else heard on earnings yesterday.”
