Billboard Media Group has appointed Hannah Karp as Editorial Director effective immediately.
Karp (pictured) is being promoted from her most recent role as Billboard’s News Director.
In her new role, she will oversee all editorial coverage and analysis of the music business with a specific emphasis on ‘content and serving the industry across platforms’.
Prior to joining Billboard, Karp oversaw business-related music coverage at The Wall Street Journal.
Deanna Brown, Valence Managing Director, said: “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 first women in history of the publication to assume this role.”
