AOL’s Barrett to Join Fox Interactive As Chief Revenue Officer

Michael Barrett, executive VP at AOL Media Networks, is leaving the company to become Chief Revenue Officer at Fox Interactive Media, reports MediaWeek, which we have also confirmed from our sources. This is the first big ad sales snag by FIM since its formation about a year ago. Barrett had headed up ad sales for AOL since a reorg in early 2004.
The story also says that Kathy Kayse, senior vp sales, AOL Media Networks, might take over Barrett’s responsibilities at AOL, reporting directly to Michael Kelly, the current president of AOL Media Networks.
