Beats Music CEO Ian Rogers will oversee iTunes Radio now that Apple's acquisition of Beats Music and Beats Electronics is complete. iTunes Music was launched back in September and by March it had overtaken Spotify to become the third most popular music streaming service in the United States.

Apple posted a microsite this morning to welcome Beats to the family saying, "Today we are excited to officially welcome Beats Music and Beats Electronics to the Apple family. Music has always held a special place in our hearts, and we’re thrilled to join forces with a group of people who love it as much as we do."

Rogers, a former Yahoo executive, will run both teams to create cohesion in Apple’s streaming-music options, according to the people familiar with the matter. Pandora and Spotify, the two-biggest streaming music services, each offer both a free ad-supported service and a subscription-based service.

Apple has already started processing online purchases for Beats products via the Apple Store. We'll let you know of any further developments.
