MySpace CEO Owen Van Natta, brought in 10 months ago to revitalize the social networking site in light of the massive popularity of Facebook, is out, according to a Bloomberg story in BusinessWeek.


Van Natta's clashes with News Corp. digital media chief Jon Miller had intensified in recent weeks, leading to Van Natta's resignation, according to the Los Angeles Times.


Jason Hirschhorn, the company's chief operating officer, and Mike Jones, its chief product officer, will become co-CEOs.
