Bill Werde: 'iTunes' Success Does Not Equal Billboard's Detriment'
Video: The lifeblood of Billboard has always been its music charts, like the Hot 100 or Top 200 Albums. Yet, now that Apple has officially killed Tower Records, it's easy to assume that the Billboard brand is suffering right along with physical album sales. Not true, says editorial director Bill Werde. With conferences like its upcoming Country Music Summit and cover subjects that keep folks buzzing, Werde says his mag has been able to adapt (thrive, even) with the times.
