Two of Andrew Breitbart’s business associates are stepping up and filling the roles the late herald of the conservative movement held in his media company, Politico reports. The newly appointed pair will help bring the expansion plans Breitbart made for his media empire to fruition, before his untimely death earlier this month.
 
Laurence Solov, who formerly served as president and chief operating officer, will fill Breitbart’s post as CEO, while Steve Bannon, a former board member at Breitbart News Network, has been appointed executive chairman.
 
“We are continuing,” Solov said. “Andrew and I had a vision for this company. Andrew was very clear with this vision, and I shared this vision, and I’m going to make sure that the company continues to pursue it.”
 
The company, which is the brainchild behind the network of “Big” sites — including Big Government, and Big Hollywood — launched the enterprise under a single Breitbart.com homepage four days following Breitbart’s death. Breitbart had been devoting up to 10 hours a day working on the web design re-launch prior to his death, according to Bannon.
 
“It was always Andrew’s vision to unite the various ‘Big’ sites under a single front page, but he wanted new technology to do that, so he had spent the previous year working with our technical team on developing a new infrastructure for the site and for the front page,” Joel Pollack, recently appointed editor-in-chief, said.
 
“And the rational was to have, over time, Breitbart.com transition from a blog site that occasionally broke news to a comprehensive site that led the news cycle,” he said.
