The Gold Coast Bulletin - Play Magazine - - PLAY FREE TV -

mogul An­to­nio ‘‘L.A.’’ Reid is to quit Amer­i­can TV tal­ent show The X Fac­tor af­ter two sea­sons. The chair­man and CEO of Epic Records will walk away as a judge on Simon Cow­ell’s show when the cur­rent sea­son ends this month. ‘‘I will not re­turn to The X Fac­tor next year. I have a com­pany to run that I’ve kind of ne­glected,’’ Reid (pic­tured) says. ‘‘It sad­dens me a lit­tle bit, but only a lit­tle bit. I love Simon. We have a great re­la­tion­ship. We have fun to­gether, we talk, we laugh, we do bad things, we’re friends.’’ There has been no men­tion of who will re­place him on the show.
