SUNNYVALE, Calif. (AP) — Published reports say Yahoo is hiring Google executive Marissa Mayer to be its next CEO.

Mayer has been involved with Google's search, gmail and Google news features.

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

Mayer is 1993 graduate of Wausau West High School.
