Madden Named As Blender Publisher

It has just been announced that former Reader’s Digest publisher Ben Madden (pictured) was named as publisher of Blender in a surprise move.

As for Blender‘s current (for now) publisher, Lee Rosenbaum? Alpha Media has confirmed that Rosenbaum is out of here.

Madden’s transition from the stodgy Digest to the self-consciously edgy Alpha Media music mag is a surprising one… But given the recent corporate shake-up at RD, there is some top-shelf talent out there for the taking.

First day on the job for the new publisher is November 26.

As always, developing.
