After spending six years at Sony's Epic Records, L.A. Reid is no longer leading the label.
Sony Music Entertainment released a seven-word statement Saturday announcing the exit: "L.A. Reid will be leaving the company."
The label had no additional comment.
Reid joined the company as CEO in 2011. Epic Records currently has the No. 1 song on the Billboard Hot 100 chart with "I'm the One," by DJ Khaled featuring Justin Bieber, Chance the Rapper and Quavo from Migos.
