Soboroff was one of the original hosts for HuffPost Live at the studios in Beverly Hills, and he now becomes the online network's third host to leave in two months. He announced yesterday that he will be starting a new gig "in TV land" on Friday, with details to come. "Sad to say today is my last day at HuffPost Live." he said on Twitter. It has been an honor to be a part of such an innovative and important project. Will have more info to share soon." Jacob, of course, was a former contributor here at LA Observed.
"His departure follows those of Alicia Menendez and Abby Huntsman, HuffPost Live's two most recognizable faces, who also recently resigned to take jobs with traditional TV outlets. Their exits suggest the infant network is a victim of its own success: It can find and promote new talent, but seems to have trouble keeping it," said Capital New York.
Here's a tribute video they made for him at HuffPost, and a Vine with co-host Alyona Minkovski.
