Rock Sound magazine has appointed Ben Patashnik, current Deputy Editor, to the role of Editor, replacing Darren Taylor who announced he was leaving the title last month. Patashnik, who joined Rock Sound from the NME in early 2010, will take over the top job at the rock monthly on 13 Jun. It’s also been confirmed that, although relocating to the US, Taylor will continue to oversee Rock Sound’s Exposure section.

Confirming the appointment, Rock Sound Publisher Patrick Napier told CMU: “Ben’s contribution has been hugely impressive since he joined and we feel he richly deserves this promotion. I’m also very happy that Darren will continue to look after the Exposure section so we will still benefit from his knack of spotting new talent which has been such a big part of Rock Sound’s success over the years”.
