The move comes as the company splits in two.

News Corp. said Thursday that chief digital officer Jonathan Miller would leave his job in September.

Miller will stay on as an outside advisor through fall 2013. He took the role in 2009, focusing on both distribution and international investments, while also serving as the News Corp. representative on the board of Hulu.

"Jon Miller is a visionary in the digital media industry, and his commitment to News Corporation over the last three years has driven us to truly evolve the way millions of people use new platforms to consume news and entertainment," CEO Rupert Murdoch said in a statement. "As we prepare for our proposed Company separation, I respect Jon’s desire to return to an operational, entrepreneurial role with a standalone company.  He will be missed and I can’t thank him enough for his efforts and many valued contributions."
