Yahoo! Chairman, 3 Other Board Members Leaving
SUNNYVALE, California (AP) — Yahoo Chairman Roy Bostock and three longtime board members are leaving the troubled Internet company.
Yahoo Inc. ushered in a new era last month by hiring former PayPal executive Scott Thompson as its fourth CEO in less than five years.
Then Yahoo co-founder Jerry Yang resigned from the board.
Bostock is departing along with Vyomesh Joshi, Arthur Kern and Gary Wilson.
Many Yahoo shareholders have been clamoring for Bostock to step down since the company balked a $47.5 billion takeover offer from Microsoft Corp. in 2008.
