With Austin Daboh joining Atlantic Records UK, Apple Music has briskly moved to fill the role of head of editorial in the key UK and Ireland markets. Replacing Daboh is Ryan Newman, who joined the music streaming giant in mid-2018 as a music manager before rising to head of artist relations in January 2019.
"MASSIVE congratulations to Ryan Newman who has been made Head of Editorial for Apple Music," tweeted Daboh on Tuesday. "Another black brother given a leading position at a global company."
The head of editorial oversees the streaming platform's playlist ecosystem and various marketing initiatives. Newman reports to George Ergatoudis, head of music at Apple Music UK.
