Hulu reportedly eyes Fox TV exec for CEO
Mike Hopkins, president of distribution for Fox Networks Group, could be taking on the top role at the video-streaming company.
Hulu might soon have a new, permanent CEO.
The streaming-video company is currently in talks with Fox Networks Group president of distribution Mike Hopkins to be its next chief executive, Reuters reported on Thursday, citing people who claim to have knowledge of Hulu's plans.
Hulu, which is owned by Fox, Walt Disney Co., and Comcast, has been searching for a new chief executive since earlier this year. Andy Forssell has been filling in for Hulu as its interim CEO until a replacement is named.
Hulu declined CNET's request for comment.
Bloomberg reported the news earlier Thursday.
