AOL is shutting down AOL Music and several other music news and video websites, according to employee tweets Friday.
Move to shutter music sites shows the company is refocusing on higher-growth areas — including original video content, which will be on display at AOL’s Digital Content NewFront presentation next week.
As of Saturday morning, the company had not issued a statement on the actions and had not responded to a request for information. It’s unclear how many employees were affected.
