After much speculation, it was finally confirmed that News Corp has hired Owen Van Netta, former chief revenue officer and vp of operations at Facebook, as the new CEO of MySpace. He will replace Chris Wolfe, whose resignation was announced Wednesday.
Van Netta spent less than a year as CEO at Playlist after Facebook. Previously, he was VP of worldwide business and corporate development at Amazon.com.
Van Netta's hiring comes almost a month after former AOL exec Jonathan Miller was tapped to head up News Corp's digital division.
