Rolling Stone Tunes Into Music Industry Pros With Latest Product Launch

Since being acquired by PMC Media in 2018, Rolling Stone has undergone a series of changes to transform its business. It invested in writing talent, and hired a new publisher to lead the business-side of the brand.

Its latest initiative targeting music industry professionals—many of whom are already readers because they often work behind the scenes with the artists featured on the magazine’s iconic covers, album reviews, profiles and enterprise stories—is a new e-letter specifically designed for that cohort. RS Pro will feature exclusive content for subscribers that lives strictly in an email format. The email will be distributed weekly and is primarily designed to appeal to industry professionals seeking deeper dives into the inner workings of the music industry, context around the latest music charts and explorations into the “drama” of the music business. “Music industry professionals must have dynamic resources to navigate the upheaval” Amy X.
