Industry Moves: Fox Interactive Hires Grey Away From Yahoo

We hear Fox Interactive Media has snared Yahoo Sports GM Brian Grey as the new unit’s first major outside hire. It’s a step up in rank for Grey, slated to be announced Tuesday as SVP-GM,, but he leaves the number-two sports site behind.
As Grey’s conference bio notes, he joined Yahoo in late 2001 from Shutterfly, where he was vp-business development. He’s also been at Netscape and Nike — and, in 1994-95, scouted for the Chicago White Sox.
This won’t be the last key outside hire for FIM given the current competitive nature of the market … I’m beginning to think we should change “industry moves” to “musical chairs.”
