TechCrunch’s Michael Arrington says he’s tracked down Yahoo’s next acquisition: Video host Maven Networks, for $150 million. Maven helps the likes Fox News, CBS Sports, CNet and Scripps put up Web clips.

Maven has raised $30 million to date from Accel Partners, General Catalyst, and Prism VentureWorks.
