ANOTHER EXIT: News Corp. chief digital officer Jonathan Miller is leaving the company and, according to a spokesman, he will not be replaced.
Miller’s departure is the latest from the executive ranks since the company revealed in June that it would split its publishing business from its entertainment holdings. “While my time spent has been productive, it feels like the right time to exit,” said Miller. “I look forward to pursuing new ventures that will lead me back into an operational role.” Miller will continue to work with News Corp. as an outside adviser on digital issues through fall 2013.

Miller’s role at the company has diminished since he joined in 2009, back when MySpace was still under News Corp.’s umbrella. More recently, he’s managed investment stakes in Roku and Bona Film Group. News Corp. chief executive officer Rupert Murdoch said that he respected Miller’s desire to return to an operational, entrepreneurial role with a stand-alone company.
