Hulu in talks with Fox TV exec to be CEO


HuluHulu is negotiating with Fox television executive Mike Hopkins to name him chief executive officer of the video streaming company, says a Reuters story. Hopkins is currently President of Distribution for Fox Networks Group, a unit of Twenty-First Century Fox.

Hulu is owned by Fox, Disney and Comcast. However, Comcast is restricted from making business decisions related to Hulu as part of its settlement with the U.S. government when it acquired NBC Universal.

Hulu’s owners considered selling the company earlier this year but called off the sale in July and promised to invest $750 million to help it grow.
