The Hollywood Reporter & Billboard Media Group Lay Off More Than 20 Staff

It’s going to be a rough start to the year for more than 20 staff at Hollywood Reporter-Billboard Media Group.

2018 wasn’t smooth sailing as we saw Billboard’s CEO, John Amato, forced to step down following an internal investigation into the fact that he had prevented or influenced or halted reporting about serious sexual abuse allegations against a leading music exec, Charlie Walk, who also happens to be his personal friend. It was reported he recieved an $18 Million US settlement upon his departure which makes it even more painful to hear the company has laid off it’s staff. Key exits include Dana Miller, the media group’s Chief Marketing Officer, and Jayme Klock, Managing Editor for Billboard’s magazine.
