Apple has picked Beats Music subscription service CEO Ian Rogers to additionally head up iTunes Radio, according to a new report from the Wall Street Journal. Citing people familiar with the matter, the report notes that Rogers will still continue to run the Beats Music subscription service while working to “create cohesion” between the two offerings. Before Beats Music, which was famously acquired by Apple despite a relatively small subscriber base, Rogers previously ran Yahoo Music, which launched and then folded an early subscription-based music service.
