Numerous reports last night that Jon Miller is going to be taking over as digital head at Newscorp:

Once he does sign, which seems likely, Miller will become News Corp.’s chief digital officer, reporting directly to the media giant’s head, Rupert Murdoch. Based in New York, he will also be chairman and CEO of the newly created News Digital Media group.

Sources noted that this is a a different and larger platform for Miller, bigger than just the Fox Interactive Media job that Levinsohn held. It will go across all properties held by News Corp. across the globe.

“The idea is to mainstream the digital initiatives, which have been all over the company,” said one source close to the situation.

I worked for and with Jon for seven years, both at IAC and at AOL. He is terrific; a premier strategist and thinker about the online world. AOL did terrifically well under his leadership, and took a marked and immediate turn for the worse when he left. He has a huge palette to paint with with the Newscorp digital assets.

Congrats to both Jon and Newscorp.
