MySpace and News Corporation have announced that Co-President Jason Hirschorn has decided to leave the company.


MySpace has had quite a few of their executives leave the company over the past year.

Chief Digital Officer of News Corp, Jon Miller released the following statement:

‘We fully respect Jason’s decision to leave and his personal desire to return to New York. As many people know, Jason is like family to me, and as expected, he’s done everything we asked of him and more. We’re incredibly grateful for the passion and enthusiasm he brought to the company. And as I know Jason agrees, Mike Jones has done an outstanding job leading MySpace into its next evolution and is the right person to take the reins. There are no plans to bring in additional management.’

Co-founder Tom Anderson known as ‘MySpace Tom’ essentially does little at the company now. Tom was extremely popular in MySpace’s height of popularity – but now very little is hear of him.


MySpace and News Corporation have no plans to replace Jason Hirschorn at this stage.

Traffic and user numbers to MySpace has long been in decline – hopefully they can keep this original and music inspired social network going strong.
