Josh Glicksman


Josh Glicksman is an assistant editor at <em>Billboard</em>. Prior to joining the magazine in 2018, he had contributed to publications such as <em>Entertainment Weekly</em> and Consequence. In addition to writing artist profiles — including a 2021 cover story on The Kid LAROI — and pieces related to different facets of the industry, he helps to coordinate coverage for <em>Billboard</em>'s Sound section and the Hot 100 Q&A. He primarily covers hip-hop, pop and alternative rock, and primarily listens to the same, including lots of Mac Miller. He has a B.S. in journalism from Northwestern University and wishes you a very hearty "Go 'Cats." A native of Pittsburgh, Pa., he'll spend hours on end trying to convince you that it's a Midwestern city. In his free time, he can be found hiking and looking for the best sandwich shop that the closest city or town has to offer.
