Liz Rosenberg, a 39-year veteran of Warner Brothers Records, will leave the label to start her own PR firm at the end of the month, the AP reports.
Rosenberg will bring clients Michael Buble, Cher, and Stevie Nicks to her new venture, called Liz Rosenberg Media, and will still consult to WBR. She will also continue to represent Madonna, as she did when the pop star left Warner Brothers for concert promoter Live Nation in 2007.
“I was given the opportunity to work with the most talented artists in music history. I’m grateful that I will continue to represent some of these artists, in addition to several new artists,” Rosenberg said in a statement.

LIZ ROSENBERG TO LEAVE WARNER BROS. RECORDS
Burbank, CA â€“ Liz Rosenberg, the PR icon who has worked with some of the biggest names in the music business at Warner Bros. Records for the past 39 years, is leaving the company at the end of the month, it was announced today by Warner Bros. Records CEO Tom Whalley. Rosenberg is forming her own agency, Liz Rosenberg Media, with plans to represent several of the label’s artists as part of an ongoing consultancy with the company. She will continue to represent Madonna (currently a Live Nation artist) â€” a fact that underscores the long-standing relationship the two have had since the dawn of the Material Girlâ€™s career. Since coming onboard at Warner Bros. in 1971, Rosenberg has repped some of the most enduring and innovative artists of our time including Michael Buble, Cher, Stevie Nicks, and David Foster, as well as newcomers Charice and Katherine Jenkins â€” all of whom will remain with her at Liz Rosenberg Media.
“Over the course of her remarkable tenure, Liz Rosenberg’s contribution to the company has been immeasurable,” Whalley says. “We are delighted that as she begins her own enterprise, we will continue our association with her on behalf of several of our key artists. We wish Liz all the best and are confident that she will succeed beyond all expectations and have the opportunity to work in other realms of the entertainment business.”
“No one has had a more thrilling ride than I have had during my decades at Warner Bros. Records where I grew up and learned my craft,” Rosenberg says. “I was given the opportunity to work with the most talented artists in music history. I’m grateful that I will continue to represent some of these artists, in addition to several new artists. I am grateful to Tom Whalley for his tremendous support. I will miss him and my entire Warner Bros. family.”
