It appears much of the key management at Sling Media
, now a division of EchoStar
are leaving. Those who've decided to split ways include: chief executive Blake Krikorian, senior vice president of business development Jason Krikorian, president Jason Hirschhorn, chief creative officer Ben White and vice president of sales Greg Wilkes.
Echostar purchased Sling Media for $380 million in September 2007 and agreed to stay in place for a year after the completed deal.
Sling Media is widely known for its Slingbox “place-shifting” TV gadgets and Sling.com which launched late last year.
