MySpace Loses Hirschhorn, Jones To Take Over
MySpace co-president Jason Hirschhorn is leaving the firm, according to the firm, and fellow co-president Mike Jones is taking over the helm, remaining as President. MySpace, which confirmed earlier rumors of the move Thursday afternoon, said that Hirschhorn is returning to New York, and that "we fully respect" Jason's decision to leave. No details on why Hirschorn is leaving was given by the company. In a statement, Jon Miller, Chief Digital Officer of News Corporation, said that "Mike Jones has done an outstanding job leading MySpace into its next evolution and is the right person to take the reins."
