Meet The New Boss

Jun 26th, 2007 // 22 Comments

Hey everyone–

Brian, the lame duck here. As some of you may know, Friday will be my last day at Idolator, and I’m extremely pleased to announce that Associate Editor Maura Johnston will be taking over the site. This is good news for Idolator readers, and a bit of a milestone, as Maura is the first Love/Hate fan to assume leadership at a music-news outlet in what must be years.

Feel free to send any congrats/gripes her way. I’ll be in the back, phoning it in more aggressively than usual.

    Congrats!

    I assume if Maura had not gotten the position, someone would be living in fear of being hit in the noggin with an E’Nuff Z’nuff cassette.

  3. brasstax

    Yes! Metal me, please.

  4. KeBove

    Grats! Does this mean the bad puns are gonna stop now? I hope not.

  5. brasstax

    Brian has a footlocker full of all-occasion puns that he’s leaving behind that should hold out until at least 2012.

  6. Dan Gibson

    I’m just going to assume that this Maura can be trusted until I see evidence to the contrary.

    Congrats on what I can only presume to be the kick-assiest of positions

    Here’s the key question: Why *do* you think they call it dope?

  9. Chris Molanphy

    Now Idolator can launch its long-awaited soundtrack on the homepage, consisting entirely of late-’80s hi-NRG and freestyle jams.

    Congrats, girlfriend!

    Congratulations, Maura!

    This can only mean one thing: MORE ZEBRA.
