http://techcrunch.com – Hulu has announced that Mike Hopkins, a board member at Hulu and president of Fox Networks Group, is the company’s new CEO. Hopkins had previously been reported as the likely candidate for the role. It’s been a bumpy year for the online TV site. Then-CEO Jason Kilar left in March and was replaced by acting CEO Andy Forssell who now, according to Hulu, is leaving the company. Then there were rumors that the media companies that own Hulu (21st Century Fox, The Walt Disney Company, and NBC Universal) were looking to sell, though they eventually invested another $750 million instead.
