    The Hollywood Reporter confirms that Antonio "L.A." Reid, who recently left his post as Island Def Jam's chairman to join Simon Cowell over on the The X Factor as a judge, will run the newly restructured Epic Records. Reid, 55, will serve as the chairman of the label.

    Reid is expected to take office after the Fourth of July holiday. He is replacing the departed Amanda Ghost, a songwriter who held the post for only a year and nearly succeeded in sinking the label with her lack of leadership and know-how when it came to steering a major label ship.

    Congrats to LA Reid on his "other" new gig.

    Will you be watching The X Factor when it debuts this fall?

    —Amy Sciarretto
