AOL executive Jon Brod is set to leave the company, according to AllThingsD.

Brod was also tasked with integrating Huffington Post with AOL and later saving Patch, a local news startup Brod co-founded in 2007 and was subsequently bought out by AOL in 2009.

Neither job really took off leaving Brod without a practical job at the company. Brod indicated that he wants to join a startup.

Brod will be leaving an old friend Tim Armstrong. Armstrong is the current CEO of AOL and the two have collaborated and worked together on many projects.
