Ira Madison III is moving over from MTV News

Included in the announcement about Ira Madison III transitioning from MTV News to The Daily Beast was this quote from Daily Beast senior entertainment editor Marlow Stern: “Ira is one of those rare writers who doesn’t merely add to existing conversations but creates new ones. I’ve been a fan of his for quite some time and couldn’t be more excited to have him join our talented, award-winning entertainment team.” Madison’s last day at MTV is May 26; he starts at The Daily Beast June 5.
