The supposed YouTube challenger being built by NBC and News Corp has yet to be named, it has however named a CEO.  Jason Kilar, a former Amazon.com exec, has been tapped for the role.

Kilar, 36, was key executive at Amazon.com for nearly a decade until leaving the online retailer last year, NBC Universal and News Corp. said in a statement.

“We are very pleased to have an executive of Jason’s caliber take the reins of our groundbreaking joint venture,” NBC Universal Chief Executive Jeff Zucker said in a statement. NBC Universal is a unit of General Electric Co. (GE).

In honor of the new CEO, maybe they should name it YouTubeKilar! ;-)
