MySpace has offered MTV Networks’ EVP Digital Music and Media Courtney Holt the top job at the newly launched MySpace Music, CNET reports. We’ve confirmed this through our own sources, and we believe Holt has all but accepted the position and is in the final stages of contract negotiation.
The hunt for a CEO is nearly a year old. Earlier this year we reported on some of the early candidates. Last month we reported that ex-Facebooker Owen Van Natta was interviewing for the position, but those discussions were somewhat complicated by a simultaneous effort by Van Natta to sell Project Playlist to MySpace as well.
Currently Holt is Executive Vice President, Digital Media, MTV Networks Music and Logo Group where he oversees all digital initiatives.
