April 3rd, 2024

“Record Label Layoffs Hit Radio Promotions Staffs: Why It’s Happening.”

Billboard addressed that question today in a new piece by Steve Knapper (with additional reporting by Gail Mitchell). 

The article includes quotes from Ron Poore, a 21-year veteran who worked Paramore’s “This Is Why” last year as Senior VP of Promotion at Atlantic Records.
Billboard’s reporting also includes interviews with Diane Monk Harrison (WEA), Skip Bishop (ex-Sony), Don Cristi (laid off by iHeartMedia), Bob McLynn (Crush Music), and Ed Brennan (ex-Atlantic).
Several rock and alternative artists, including Green Day and Fall Out Boy, are name-checked.
