Mike Bebel is leaving his post as president/COO of Napster. He will stay on in a transitional role for a short period.

Brad Duea, formerly VP of international business development for Napster, has been named president. Laura Goldberg, formerly senior VP of operations, takes over Bebel's COO role, reporting to Duea. Both are based in L.A.

Duea reports to Chris Gorog, chairman/CEO of Napster parent Roxio. In the wake of Bebel's departure, Gorog will take a more hands-on role in Napster's day-to-day operations.

Glenn Kaino has been promoted to chief creative officer. He was executive VP of programming and creative.

Roxio acquired the assets of Pressplay -- the digital-music joint venture from Universal Music Group and Sony Music -- and integrated it with the defunct Napster brand last year. Bebel had been a key executive at Pressplay since its formation in 2001.

Roxio plans to release its latest earnings statement Feb. 4.
