MySpace Music, the digital music service for the News Corp's social network, has finally named a leader.
As first reported by CNET News on Friday, MySpace Music has hired Courtney Holt, an MTV exec and a longtime digital music veteran as president of the digital music service, the company said Tuesday.
Holt is expected to start work on January 5, the company said in a statement. MySpace Music went through a long process to hire a chief, with at least one candidate backing out at the last minute.
"Courtney understands how to successfully blend technology with music and the resulting new business opportunities born from such a combination," said Chris DeWolfe, MySpace CEO.
Holt was executive vice president of Digital Music for the MTV Networks.
