Facebook eyeing online TV service Hulu's chief Kilar for top job
Washington, July 10 (ANI): Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg is eyeing online TV service Hulu's chief Jason Kilar for a senior position in the social networking giant, a report has claimed.
Sources have claimed that Zuckerberg 'likes' Kilar, a well-respected Internet executive with deep ties to big media players, and has designs on him for a senior role.
The move comes as Facebook has planned to step up its courtship of the media business, New York Post reports.
According to the report, Facebook is also in talks with the record companies about taking a stake in music-video hub Vevo as part of a broader ad partnership.
Kilar, a former Amazon executive, doused speculation last week that he was in the running to lead embattled InterYahoo, saying he was "graciously declining to be considered."
The report quoted sources, as saying that Kilar could update his status to "available" now that his contract has expired with Hulu.
The sources added that Kilar can, however, renew his deal with Hulu, which is backed by ABC, NBC and Fox News.
Meanwhile, Facebook has declined to comment on the matter. (ANI)
