Fox Exec Uses MySpace to Call it Quits

How does a MySpace executive announce his resignation? On his MySpace page, of course. Fox Interactive president Ross Levinsohn wrote Friday in a blog post that he would step down effective November 27. His cousin, Peter Levinson, would take over his position at that time. Peter is also an employee of parent company News Corp -- he has been president of the digital media division of Fox Entertainment since 2004.

Both Levinsons have helped lead News Corp into the digital age: Ross is widely credited with organizing the MySpace merger, while Peter gets the credit for bringing Fox's programming online. "It's been an awesome two years building Fox Interactive Media, and the company is in great shape for the future. There is a whole world out there to explore," Levinsohn said on his MySpace page.
