Should we start talking about the curse of MidemNet? MySpace CEO Owen Van Natta has left the company suddenly, seemingly following a clash with News Corporation’s digital media boss Jon Miller. “In talking to Owen about his priorities both personally and professionally going forward, we both agreed that it was best for him to step down at this time,” said Miller in a statement. He’s being replaced by two co-presidents, Mike Jones and Jason Hirschhorn, who both joined the company last April alongside Van Natta as chief operating officer and chief product officer respectively. “We joined MySpace last April with very a specific set of goals in mind, and are anxious to continue working together to make those goals a reality,” they say in a joint statement.
