AOL Time Warner is on the brink of naming a chief executive for its America Online division and all eyes are on Jonathan Miller, the former cable TV and online executive.
The top slot at the conglomerate's division has been vacant since April, when former chief executive Barry Schuler made his exit.
He was promptly replaced by Bob Pittman, AOL Time Warner's then chief operating officer, who as interim chief executive aimed to get the unit's online ad revenues back on track.
But in mid-July Pittman left the company amid rumours of being under pressure. Internally, he had apparently been blamed for the company's dropping stock price, made worse by ad revenue losses and slowing subscriber growth.
Miller is a former chief executive of USA Interactive's Information and Services Group, where he managed the firm's ecommerce ventures such as Ticketmaster and Expedia. In June, he left USA Interactive to head an ecommerce start-up.
Although the move is widely expected in the industry, AOL Time Warner has yet to comment on the appointment.
