The deal is expected to be announced tomorrow at the press conference that Yahoo hastily scheduled on Friday. Tumblr CEO David Karp will reportedly remain with Yahoo for a minimum of four years and he is said to be retaining a lot of control over the blogging service, much like Instagram's CEO did when acquired by Facebook.

 

If Yahoo does announce this deal tomorrow, we'll let you know.
