MOTOWN Pres. SYLVIA RHONE exited her position in MAY (NET NEWS 5/23), and is rumored to be heading to SONY to launch the defunct PORTRAIT RECORDS label, reports THE NEW YORK POST. "RHONE will be working closely with EPIC honcho L.A. REID. Sources say REID and RHONE will be sharing staff as PORTRAIT will not be a full-service label with its own promotion department."
REID was officially named Chairman/CEO at EPIC RECORDS MONDAY (NET NEWS 7/18).
PORTRAIT, started in 1976, was dissolved in 2002.
