Executive Shuffle: Buzznet, NPR Digital Media

At least one AOL Music executive jumped ship before a massive cutback announcement on Monday.

Fast-growing, music-focused social networking destination Buzznet recently announced the arrival of Scott Boyd, a former executive at AOL Music.  Boyd will step into the role of General Manager of Music at Buzznet, and will assume responsibility for music content, production and programming.

Elsewhere, Maria Thomas has grabbed the role of Senior Vice President at National Public Radio (NPR) Digital Media, an elevation for the executive.  Thomas has served as Vice President and General Manager of online initiatives since 2001, as has been credited with building a strong digital profile for the broadcasting group.
