MORE BIG CHANGES AT WME? (UPDATE)

As the turmoil continues at beleaguered WME Music, head of music for the East Coast Samantha Kirby Yoh will be the next to exit.

According to people close to the negotiations, the parties agreed to part ways because they couldn’t come to terms on a new contract.

U.K. native Yoh, a 16-year WME veteran, became a partner in 2012; her clients have included Florence and the MachineLCD SoundsytemFKA Twigs and Alicia Keys. In addition to her agency work she is a co-founder (with Keys, UMPG boss Jody Gerson and engineer Ann Mincieli) of She Is the Music and serves on the board of the Annenberg School. Is she headed for the rebuilding UTA? Are other agencies in the mix? What further drama might be in store at WME? Stay tuned.
