NEW YORK — Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service has lost its third CEO in two years.

Tidal said Friday that Jeffrey Toig has left the company, which was launched in 2015. Toig joined Tidal in January 2016.

The streaming service said in a statement that it will announce a new CEO “in the coming weeks” and wishes Toig “all the best in his future endeavours.”
