Industry veteran promoted to newly-created role overseeing all multi-platform editorial coverage.
Billboard Media Group is proud to announce today that Hannah Karp has been named Editorial Director effective immediately. The newly created role marks the first new editorial promotion at Billboard since Valence’s acquisition. Karp is being promoted from her most recent role as Billboard’s News Director, overseeing all music industry coverage for the publication, and she will now oversee all editorial coverage and analysis of the music business with a specific emphasis on content and serving the industry across platforms.
Karp’s status as an industry veteran represents a shift back to the highest standards of journalism. She has played an essential role in managing breaking and enterprising news stories across Billboard’s digital platform since joining in April, 2017, assembling the magazine's Topline section, and advising in the curation of Billboard’s power lists and many news features.
