    How It Gets Out There

    CEO, News Corp. Digital Media Group

    Proclaimed a "media visionary of 2011" at the inaugural Media Festival held in Montreux, Switzerland, Miller, 55, and News Corp. began the year debuting The Daily, an iPad-only digital newspaper app -- a first of its kind.  Steve Jobs, then ailing, was reportedly very pleased with the app -- high praise from the late design-oriented CEO. The Daily has since launched an Android version and a social news application for Facebook. Miller also presided over the sale of the money-losing MySpace and took a hands-on approach guiding Hulu (a joint venture with Disney and NBCUniversal) through its growing pains. Reporting directly to chairman and CEO Rupert Murdoch, Miller's team also worked on the CES 2012 news that Microsoft's Xbox Live is getting apps for four News Corp. content entities -- Fox, Fox News, the Wall Street Journal and gaming-focused IGN.
