Report: MySpace Music close to naming CEO

Courtney Holt, the executive who oversees digital music for MTV, is close to finalizing a deal that would make him CEO of the new music service.

MySpace Music is getting closer to finally finding a CEO.

Peter Kafka at the blog All Things Digital is reporting that negotiations between MySpace Music and Courtney Holt, an MTV executive, are all but finished. Kafka writes: "At this point there doesn't seem to be anything left beyond 'i'-dotting and 't'-crossing."

Last week, we reported that MySpace Music offered Holt the vacant CEO job. On Tuesday, I reported that Owen Van Natta was a top candidate until bowing out relatively late in the process.

The newly launched music service is hosting a party in San Francisco on Thursday. Will this be Holt's coming-out party?
