Michael Provus Named Rolling Stone Publisher

Rolling-Stone-LOGO-2Michael Provus has been promoted from associate publisher to publisher of Rolling Stone. Provus had served as associate publisher since 2010.

Provus is succeeding Chris McLoughlin, who announced he was leaving amid some chaos at the magazine. The reports were that Gus Wenner forced COO John Gruber to fire an exec over the phone, and that led to Gruber leaving the title as well.

Provus’ appointment is effective immediately.
