Oath is New Name of Yahoo and AOL, Tim Armstrong Confirms
 

"Billion+ Consumers, 20+ Brands, Unstoppable Team. #TakeTheOath. Summer 2017," tweeted AOL CEO Tim Armstrong in response to a media report leaking the new name of Yahoo and AOL.

Once Verizon closes the acquisition of Yahoo, the carrier is bundling all its content efforts under a new unit called Oath, according to BusinessInsider. After delays triggered by the revelations of massive hacking attacks at Yahoo, the deal is supposed to close eventually for $4.8 billion.

Marissa Meyer will not be part of Oath says Kara Swisher on Recode. Tim Armstrong will lead Oath. His tweet is kind of confirming that he is the executive to lead Verizon's new content company. 

If Verizon took the "oath" to kill one of the internet's most iconic brands, is not known yet. A Swiss company owns the oath.com domain name and might have just hit the jackpot. The domain name has been registered back in 1996. Oath.com is not used. 

We will hear a lot more about Oath soon. The leak of the name will likely accelerate Verizon's marketing plans.
