Who Will Replace Sony Music Boss?

Who will end up taking over Sony's music division?

Jockeying for the top post at Sony Music is intensifying as company executives are heading to a management summit in Miami next week, the New York Post reported Friday.

RCA Music Group head Barry Weiss, Rob Stringer, who runs Columbia/Epic and is the brother of Sony Corp. CEO Sir Howard Stringer, and Martin Bandier, who oversees Sony's music publishing unit were listed as candidates.

The contract of current music CEO Rolf Schmidt-Holtz expires at the end of the year.

Citing sources, the Post said Howard Stringer hasn't made a decision yet and may extend Schmidt-Holtz's contract by a few months to buy additional time for a decision.

If Weiss doesn't get the top slot, the Post said he is expected to eventually leave.
