Hulu Names Interim Chief as Disney, News Corp. Mull Involvement

In an email to his team, and later on a blog post to the rest of the world, outgoing Hulu CEO Jason Kilar named an interim successor: Andy Forssell.

"Andy exemplifies the Hulu culture and has been central to Hulu's journey, helping to grow this company from 2 content partners and no revenue to over 450 content partners and approximately $700 million revenue in 2012," Kilar wrote.

Hulu won't name a permanent CEO until investors News Corp. (NASDAQ: FOXA  ) and Walt Disney (NYSE: DIS  ) decide their "forward-looking plans" as it relates to the streaming service, Kilar wrote. In the meantime, Hulu faces intensifying competition from Netflix and Coinstar's Redbox Instant.
