According to a report earlier today in Business Insider, it seems Yahoo! CEO Marissa Mayer and her fellow executives want a cable network…possibly CNN.
Nicholas Carson reports:
Yahoo may have interest in buying CNN. A media industry source close to Yahoo executives says there were “pretty active” rumors over the summer that Yahoo wanted to buy CNN from Time Warner. Buying CNN would cost Yahoo something like $5 billion or $6 billion, this source speculates.
