From the media-jobs board mediabistro:
Responsibilities: Rolling Stone magazine seeks a digitally experienced Executive Editor to create a music discovery site that features new, emerging artists both signed and unsigned; and provide an opportunity for artists and music enthusiasts to interact with one another. Artists will be enabled to mobilize their fanbase, and consumers will be exposed to new talent. Responsibilities include developing, launching, and managing this new venture.
The ad doesn’t mention a timetable for launching this venture, but we should note that the job requirements include managing-editor experience at an entertainment company, copywriting skills, and “the ability to convince people that, no matter what type of music they’re interested in, they should definitely check out Mick Jagger’s latest solo album.”
