Cyrus Krohn bolts MSN for Yahoo; Darden taps Real Branding; R/GA hires Olderman

Cyrus Krohn has departed MSN to join the Yahoo Media Group. Krohn worked for Microsoft for nine years, most of it as Slate’s publisher. Earlier this year he joined MSN Video to help advance the portal’s streaming media business. At Yahoo, he’ll become part of the portal’s steadily growing brain trust of broadcast and Hollywood content veterans.
