"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.

Yahoo also eyed Jon Miller, chief digital officer at News Corp. and former CEO at AOL, but Mr. Miller declined to go further with the process, AllThingsD reported Thursday.
