Pressplay’s CEO Leaves Ship: Only

Pressplay’s CEO Leaves Ship: Only seven months into the launch of Pressplay online music subscription service, its CEO Andy Schuon is leaving the fledgling venture. Schuon is taking a job as president of programming at Infinity Radio, and will be replaced by Pressplay’s chief operating officer, Michael Bebel.

“Some industry analysts, insiders and competitors were surprised Schoun would step down from a CEO post, noting the move could reflect uncertainty about the future of Pressplay, which has struggled to tap the mass audience of the freefile-swapping services, such as Napster, and faced a federal probe on licensing practices.”
