Executive Shuffles: Townsquare Media, XXL, The Fader, Crush Music…


Crush Music , a management company representing Sia, Wavves, Cobra Starship, and others, has a new venture. Crush Concepts is a new division that will “help brands with their music initiatives”. Peter Malkin is Crush Concepts’ new President.

Townsquare Media has acquired XXL, ending its print edition. Even though they’re moving to digital-only, Townsquare says that all of XXL’s staff will stay on board.

The Fader has some pretty big changes, building up their senior team and making other hires. Naomi Zeichner is Editor-in-Chief, Joseph Patel is VP of Content, Shomi Patwary is Senior Video Producer, and Jessica Robertson is Senior Director of Content and Strategy.
