News Corp digital chief to leave

News Corp’s chief digital officer Jonathan Miller is set to leave the company ahead of its move towards its proposed separation into two distinct companies.

Miller, who was at News Corp for three years, was responsible for the company’s digital strategy including acquiring stakes in Roku and Bona Film Group. He also represented News Corp on the board of directors at streaming service Hulu. He will leave the company in September but will serve as an outside advisor through to the autumn of 2013.

Rupert Murdoch, chairman and CEO of News Corporation, said: “Jon Miller is a visionary in the digital media industry, and his commitment to News Corporation over the last three years has driven us to truly evolve the way millions of people use new platforms to consume news and entertainment. As we prepare for our proposed company separation, I respect Jon’s desire to return to an operational, entrepreneurial role with a standalone company.  He will be missed and I can’t thank him enough for his efforts and many valued contributions.”
