Yahoo Inc. is getting rid of a little-used service for finding and rating audio programs known as "podcasts."
Yahoo's podcast section will be silenced on October 31st.
It joins several other features that Yahoo has scrapped as it tries to
snap out of a financial funk that has depressed its stock price and
triggered a reshuffling of top management.
Yahoo didn't immediately respond to a request for comment about the planned closure of the podcast service.
