Joe Levy Named EIC at Billboard

Joe Levy has been named the new Editor-in-Chief of Billboard magazine, according to the New York Post. Levy succeeds Danyel Smith, who departed the magazine in February after serving as editor for a little over a year.

Levy, who has had stints as the top editor at Maxim and Blender, will keep Billboard trade-focused while attempting to usher in some long form pieces.

“We don’t intend to make it any more consumer-facing than it already is,” Levy told the Post. “I hope I’ll bring more enterprise reporting and do more of the deep looks we’re capable of taking.”
