Kim Osorio has been named Editor In Chief of
the Source magazine, marking the first time since the magazine was founded in
1988, that a female has held the reigns at the long running hip-hop magazine.
"I am honored that the Source has recognized
my hard work and dedication over the years," Osorio told AllHipHop.com.
Under Osorio’s direction, sales of the Source
are on a steady upstream. The December issue of the magazine features four separate
covers. Two different covers of LL Cool J and two different covers of Fabolous
grace the December issue, which is on newsstands now.
"Being a woman in hip-hop is a very important
part of who I am," Osorio continued. "It’s just as important as my
years of experience and my love for this culture—ALL of which enables me
to lead this magazine."
