Amid the shift to a political focus, Gawker has shuttered several blogs within its portfolio. These include The Vane, Defamer, Morning After, Valleywag, Millihelen, The Kitchenette, Flight Club, Indefinitely Wild and Throb.

Also, Jezebel has promoted Kate Dries from senior editor to managing editor and Jia Tolentino from features editor to deputy editor. Gizmodo has hired Katie Drummond as editor in chief.

Finally, in a series of layoffs at the company, senior editor Jason Parham, news editor Taylor Berman and staff writers Jay Hathaway and Kelly Conaboy have left Gawker. Jezebel senior reporter Natasha Vargas-Cooper has also left, while Erin Gloria Ryan is leaving the blog to join Vocativ as deputy editor. Follow the transition at Gawker via Facebook and Twitter.
