The Village Voice Names New Music Editor

The Village Voice has named Maura Johnston as their new Music Editor. Rob Harvilla, the paper’s current music editor, posted that he would be leaving the Voice to take an editorial position at Rhapsody, in San Francisco.

Johnston has built quite the career for herself, having written for The Awl, Idolator and at the Village Voice.

Harvilla had this to say about leaving the paper:

This has been a dream job, and though it’s time to move on, it’s awfully hard to leave, and I’m grateful to you all for reading, writing, re-Tweeting, detracting, and however else you chose to react.
