THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: TEATIME EDITION

UMG U.K. chief David Joseph, Sony U.K. ruler Jason Iley and WMG U.K. topper Max Lousada rule Britannia--and the cover of our U.K. Special Issue, known in some circles as “HITS on Brits.” Each exec can claim significant progress over the past year and an array of bright prospects for the next.

 Sir Lucian Grainge may have his throne room in Santa Monica, but he is the most powerful monarch in the global biz, and his reign perfectly illustrates the preeminence of British execs on both sides of the drink. Though he may well issue a royal edict to banish us bothersome Yanks.
