SYCO'S SONNY TO SAY SO LONG?

Rumors are flying around Buckingham Palace that SYCO’s Sonny Takhar may be departing the label. Takhar has played a big role on the SYCO team; his departure, if confirmed, would leave sizable shoes to fill at Simon’s Cowell’s company—a JV with Sony—which has enjoyed an impressive run over the last several years with such acts as One Direction, Olly Murs, Fifth Harmony, Susan Boyle, James Arthur, Ella Henderson and Little Mix, and recently inked 12-year-old America’s Got Talent phenom Grace VanderWaal. Without Takhar, where does the label fit into the Sony U.K. ecosystem, and what are the well-liked exec’s plans going forward?
