Headphones firm Beats is looking for a new boss for streaming music service Mog, which it acquired earlier this year, with CEO David Hyman leaving abruptly. “Effective immediately, David Hyman will be stepping down from his role as CEO of MOG, but will continue working closely with the company as a strategic advisor,” a spokesperson tells CNET. Hyman himself has also addressed the change on his Facebook profile: “MOG… my child, it’s been a long great journey. But like Sting said, ‘If you love something, set it free.’ You’re in good hands at Beats. I’m looking forward to my first real break since 1994. Nepal? Kauai? Taking a year off. Do not disturb.” Beats is expected to give Mog a significant revamp and marketing push sometime in the coming months, as it looks to establish itself beyond the hardware market.
