MySpace co-founder Chris DeWolfe is stepping down as CEO “in the near future” and “by mutual agreement” his contract will not be renewed with parent company News Corp, according to a press release. DeWolfe will remain with MySpace in an advisory capacity and continue to serve on the board of MySpace China.
Tom Anderson, MySpace’s other co-founder, and its current president, will also be party to changes. Miller announced that he and Anderson are in discussions about Anderson assuming a new role. What that role is wasn’t disclosed.
The company did not immediately name a replacement, and a company spokesperson declined to comment, but some speculate that former Facebook COO Owen Van Natta is a leading candidate.
