MySpace Co-President Jason Hirschhorn Exits

(Updated) After just months after being named the Co-President of MySpace, Jason Hirschhorn has resigned. First this twee came this afternoon:

Then at 5PM this official statement was released from Jon Miller, the Chief Digital Officer of parent News Corporation: "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."

The departure comes a MySpace's traffic continues to decline.
