From Hits Daily Double:
Sources are telling us veteran Urban music exec Kevin Liles has exited his post at Warner Music Group. We'll let you know when we hear more details. Liles, a Lyor Cohen cohort since both were at IDJ, returned to the company just a few months ago, when he was put in charge of Warner’s growing portfolio of 360 deals, with an emphasis on monetizing those rights.
