Following his son’s role in the rebrand of their website and what is probably a healthy dose of nepotism, Gawker reports that Rolling Stone owner Jann Wenner has named his newly graduated son the new head of RollingStone.com.
In an email sent out to Rolling Stone staffers today, the elder Wenner explained:
David Kang and I are very pleased —and I am very proud —to announce that Gus Wenner, after leading the re-launch re-design effort for our website, will now continue by heading up the overall operations of RollingStone.com.
Gus Wenner, 22, is a graduate of Brown University known for playing in an alt-country band with fellow celebuspawn/Brown student Scout Willis. Listen to what will surely be the future of Rolling Stone by clicking here.
