As the industry continues to shift and online media continues to dominate and grow, mainstream trades are making changes. R&R’s 16 year president and publisher Erica Farber is leaving. Her last day is Jan 30. The publication will integrate into the Nielsen Business Media Co. concurrent with Farber’s departure and Howard Appelbaum, publisher of Billboard and VP of entertainment for Business Media, will add R&R to his responsibilities, uniting both music industry brands under one leader. Editor’s Note: We like Erica and wish her continued success.
