Morris also outed in Post

MORE MORRIS: The N.Y. Post’s Claire Atkinson is also reporting the Morris-to-Sony Music rumor (see items below). “Morris has a lucrative $10 million contract that runs through January 2013 and calls for him to stay on as chairman after he relinquishes the CEO title,” she writes. “It's unclear the extent to which Universal is prepared to enforce the provisions of his contract. A source said it was unlikely that Morris, who has been talking to Sony Corp. CEO Howard Stringer about taking the reins of Sony Music Entertainment, would leave before the end of the year. The 72-year-old Morris had been at the helm of Universal Music for 15 years before the record giant tapped its international chief, Lucian Grainge, as his successor earlier this year.” The N.Y. Times’ Ben Sisario read the tea leaves differently: “Weiss’ move to Universal may signal the end of a power struggle within Sony to succeed Rolf Schmidt-Holtz as the chief executive of the company’s music division. Weiss had been competing fiercely for the position with Rob Stringer, the chairman of Sony’s other music division, the Columbia/Epic Label Group.” (12/8a)
