Mapes (BSJ ’10) named Associate Music Content Producer, Classic Rock at CBS Local
Melanie Mapes (BS Journalism ’10) recently accepted a position at CBS Local, through CBS Interactive Music Group. In her role as Associate Music Content Producer, Classic Rock, Mapes will write, edit and produce music news, features and other content for radio station websites, CBS sites in every market, last.fm and radio.com.
Prior to joining the team at CBS, Mapes was an assistant editor at Billboard.com. According to Mapes, she worked at Billboard, in some capacity, since she was 19-years-old. The new endeavor will allow her to work on essentially a wire service of music news for use by radio stations and their digital platforms.
Of the department, which is still just coming together, Mapes says, “I have no idea if we have interns, but if we do, I would obviously love to give Scripps kids the opportunity.”
