Nibley comes from Reuters, where he co-founded Reuters NewMedia in 1994 and currently serves as its president. He will join GetMusic on Oct. 1 to oversee and manage all operations.

GetMusic promotes BMG and Universal artists at a host of genre-based Web sites including peeps.com, bugjuice.com, twangthis.com and rockuniverse.com. These sites are linked to GetMusic’s e-commerce site, which offers 250,000 titles.
