Hulu names Fox exec Hopkins as CEO

Online video service Hulu named Fox executive Mike Hopkins as its new CEO Thursday, ending the speculation over the company's leadership following Jason Kilar's departure in March.

Andy Forssell, the former content executive who has served as interim CEO, will leave the company.

Hopkins was president of distribution for Fox Networks Group, where he oversaw Fox's on-demand and digital offerings including through apps such as Fox Now.

Hopkins also served on the Hulu board for several years.

Hulu, based in Los Angeles, is owned by 21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Co. and Comcast Corp.
