They have eliminated ward young men's presidencies, but they have not eliminated the young men's program, or for that matter stake or churchwide young men's presidencies.

Here are the relevant quotes from the article:
"Young Men presidencies at the ward level will be discontinued by January 2020, allowing bishoprics to give greater emphasis and focus on the priesthood responsibilities of young men and help them in their quorum duties, Church leaders announced Saturday afternoon.
In addition to the discontinuation of ward Young Men presidencies, Elder Cook announced:
* At the general and stake levels, the Church will continue to have Young Men presidencies. At the stake level, a high councilor will be the Young Men president and will, with the high councilors assigned to Young Women and Primary, be part of the stake Aaronic Priesthood — Young Women Committee. A high councilor will also serve as stake Sunday School president.
* Young Men advisers will be called at the ward level to assist the Aaronic Priesthood quorum presidencies and the bishopric in their duties.
* The bishopric youth committee meeting will be replaced by a ward youth council.
* The word “Mutual” will be retired and become “Young Women activities,” “Aaronic Priesthood quorum activities,” or “youth activities” and will be held weekly where possible.
* The ward budget for youth activities will be divided equitably between the Young Men and Young Women according to the number of youth in each organization. A sufficient amount will be provided for Primary activities.
* At all levels — ward, stake and general — the term “organization” replaces the term “auxiliary.” Those who lead the Relief Society, Young Women, Young Men, Primary and Sunday School general organizations will be known as “general officers.” Those who lead organizations at the ward and stake levels will be known as “ward officers” and “stake officers.”
* Ward Young Women presidents will now report to and counsel directly with the bishop of the ward. In the past, this assignment could be delegated to a counselor."
