Jesse Angelo is leaving the New York Post publisher/CEO job after a 20-year run at Rupert Murdoch's tabloid.

Sean Giancola, chief revenue officer, will slide into Angelo's slot.

“We thank Jesse Angelo for his many and varied contributions to our company as a journalist, editor and publisher, and for his leadership during the digital transformation of the Post,” said Robert Thomson, CEO of News Corp. “Jesse has truly helped create a great platform for digital growth.”

Angelo, who was in the running to take over for Roger Ailes at Fox News, is a good friend of James Murdoch, CEO of 21stCentury Fox.

Prior to joining the Post in 2015, Giancola was VP-national sales at AOL Advertising and ad/marketing executive at American Express and Time Inc.
