Ian Rogers Leaving Yahoo Music

NEW YORK (Hypebot) — "After four years and three months, I’m leaving Yahoo! for another opportunity. I’ll be joining founders Peter Gotcher and Shamal Ranasinghe as the CEO at a still-mostly-stealth company called Topspin Media. Our mission is to help artists earn a living through software," Rogers wrote on his blog.

In recent months, Yahoo is has been cutting staff and fighting off a Microsoft buyout offer. The always forward thinking Rogers seems better suited to a more entrepreneurial and innovative environment than a stalled Yahoo! Music has become.
