Billboard Editor Moves Over to Complex Media

Executive editor Alex Gale is wrapping up his first week.

Alex Gale started his new job at Complex Media this Monday and shared the exciting career news with friends and colleagues Tuesday. We’re here to make it doubly official, on a Friday.

Gale came over to Complex Media from our sister publication Billboard, where he had been a senior editor since 2012. A Complex rep tells us they had been looking to fill the new executive editor position, with oversight of both the web and magazine sides, for quite some time.

In his first week, Gale did the top-edits for a feature about the NBA draft and another piece celebrating the 25th anniversary of Sonic the Hedgehog. He’s also already involved in the next Complex magazine cover story, which arrives July 25.

Gale’s resume encompasses earlier stints at The Source, VIBE magazine and BET.com. He also was not too long ago the bassist for “NYC’s illest hip-hop band” Dujeous, helping write and produce songs for the group as well.

It’s not often that we are able to pull up a directly connected and perfectly themed music video for a Revolving Door item. But heading into this first weekend of summer, all you need to do now is press play on the embed below and do a little dance for the new guy at Complex. Paying special attention of course to the wicked bass line.
