Beats Music boss reportedly tapped to run iTunes Radio

Ian Rogers, who heads up the Beats Music subscription service, will reportedly now run iTunes Radio for Apple. Apple's acquisition of Beats is now complete, with Apple officially welcoming the Beats team to the company this morning. Rogers will apparently remain in charge of Beats Music as well, managing all of Apple's music streaming efforts, according to the Wall Street Journal:

Rogers, a former Yahoo executive, will run both teams to create cohesion in Apple's streaming-music options, according to the people familiar with the matter. Pandora and Spotify, the two-biggest streaming music services, each offer both a free ad-supported service and a subscription-based service.

What do you think of Rogers possibly taking over on iTunes Radio? Let us know below in the comments.
