Sunnyvale - Published reports say Yahoo is hiring Google executive Marissa Mayer to be its next CEO.

The New York Times says she's starting at Yahoo on Tuesday.

Mayer was one of Google's earliest employees.

Ross Levinsohn, who joined Yahoo in late 2010, has been running the company on an interim basis and had been thought to be the lead candidate.

Levinsohn filled in after Scott Thompson lost his job in a flap over misinformation on his official biography.
