Hulu CEO Jason Kilar has declined to be considered further for the CEO post at Yahoo, Hulu said Friday.
"As has been reported, Jason Kilar has been a focus of the Yahoo CEO search committee," Hulu said in a statement. "He has graciously declined to be considered."
Mr. Kilar was on a list of potential CEOs that also includes Ross Levinsohn, who has been serving as Yahoo's interim CEO since Scott Thompson left in May over a resume scandal. Many people have expected Mr. Levinsohn to shed the "interim" from his title, but Yahoo's search committee has also been looking outside the company for candidates.
