Kim Osorio Takes Charge Of The Source

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

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."
