Yahoo Confirms Icahn Pals Biondi And Chapple To Board

Yahoo (YHOO) followed through on its committment to appease Carl Icahn by confirming former Viacom and Nextel chieftains Frank Biondi and John Chapple to the board.

He wanted the former Viacom CEO to replace Dick Parsons at Time Warner (TWX) in 2005 and 2006, and he tried to get him named to the board of Motorola (MOT) earlier this year.
