Confirmed: Courtney Holt to Head MySpace Music

MySpace_Music_President.jpgAfter going several months without a captain, MySpace has confirmed that Courtney Holt will be the new head of MySpace Music, according to CNET News.

“Courtney understands how to successfully blend technology with music and the resulting new business opportunities born from such a combination,” said Chris DeWolfe, MySpace CEO, in the article. Previously, Holt was executive vice president of Digital Music for the MTV Networks.

Holt has a big job—convince people to turn away from iTunes, Verizon V CAST Music, Rhapsody, and countless other services and come check out his site instead. Or rather, come back, as MySpace originally began as a social networking site for independent musicians before turning into a catch-all portal for everyone.
