LOS ANGELES (CelebrityAccess) Hannah Karp has been given the newly created position of Editorial Director of Billboard Media Group.
Karp was previously the news director of Billboard and will now oversee all editorial coverage and analysis of the music business with special emphasis on content.
It is the first new editorial promotion at Billboard since it was acquired by Valence Media.
“Promoted from within, she both knows and is known to the industry, while her editorial vision aligns with the bigger business vision across platforms, genres, and territory lines as well as print, digital and television live events and conferences. Also worth noting, Hannah is the first woman in the history of the publication to assume this role,” says Deanna Brown, Valence Managing Director.
“Hannah has an exemplary history as a journalist, and particularly in music. She is respected throughout our hallways, and our industry,” said Modi Wiczyk, Co-CEO of Valence Media. “We know that she will relentlessly pursue integrity – in our journalism, in our charts, in our corporate culture, and in our interactions with our industry constituents.”
