Billboard Editorial Director Jumps From Frying Pan to Fire

christina_aguilera2.jpgTamara Conniff, Billboard‘s group editorial director, is leaving the magazine to take a position at Front Line Management Group. Conniff will be president of music services for manager Iving Azoff‘s company that represents acts including The Eagles, Christina Aguilera, Neil Diamond and Guns N’ Roses.

Conniff started at Nielsen Company, which owns Billboard, 10 years ago as music editor for the Hollywood Reporter.

Billboard executive editor Bill Werde will takeover for Conniff until a replacement can be found.

Nielsen — previously known as the struggling VNU — has had a rough year. Of course, it’s not like the music industry has fared any better.
