Yahoo 9

Yahoo's media meister Lloyd Braun has stated flat out that the Sunnyvale Web portal isn't going to become an online video network to rival television.

But he's left the door open to some experiments in online broadcasting - the latest of which premiered as a test this week. Called "The 9," the show is a daily countdown of nine Web sites of interest, whether on the Yahoo network or off.

The host, Maria Sansone, is a former mtvU personality (as in MTV's college television network). Recommendations lean towards the kitchy and kooky:, a Web site where users can make a guy dance, for example.

New installments of around two minutes each are available five days a week, and are filmed by an outside producer in New York. A second Yahoo show, Hook Me Up, is available in Yahoo's personal tech area after premiering in May.
