THE DEATH OF PRINT JOURNALISM: TROPHY EDITION

Grammy’s tres hombres, Neil Portnow, Ken Ehrlich and Jack Sussman, grace the cover of the latest special issue of our print publication, and sat down with us for in-depth interviews about how they address the categories, the performances and the broadcast. But in retrospect, the envelope containing our request to put them on our award-losing rag is one they probably wish they’d left unopened. (Click the pic for a larger image.)

Our Contents Page VIP is Rob Stringer, who will succeed Doug Morris as CEO of Sony Music in April, marking another giant benchmark in the British exec’s extraordinary career. The move comes in the wake of Stringer's brilliant run as chief of Columbia, where he has both burnished the storied label’s sterling reputation and given its bottom line and marketshare a giant boost. His superstars Adele and Beyoncé, meanwhile, are considered locks for top Grammy nods. Not even this HITS Contents shout-out could Rob this moment of its luster.
