COURTSIDE ENTERTAINMENT GROUP has appointed 40-year broadcast industry veteran BOB MOORE President. MOORE previously ran CBS’ L.A. cluster and up until last October, ran the CITADEL stations in LOS ANGELES.
COURTSIDE ENTERTAINMENT, run by former WESTWOOD ONE Founder NORM PATTIZ, produces and finances multi-platform, quality programming to media outlets worldwide. Current COURTSIDE offerings include LOVELINE with DR. DREW, MIKE and SIMONE, The One Minute Clinic with DR. DREW, BILL O’REILLY specials and the ROLLING STONES 50th Anniversary special, among others.
"I am extremely excited to be working with NORM PATTIZ again," MOORE said. "NORM has been a mentor of mine for many years. We go back to the days of PIRATE RADIO. Working together at COURTSIDE is a great opportunity to use my broadcast experience at stations and working with advertisers in a way that I find extremely appealing. This company is called Courtside for a reason, so don’t be surprised to see me at a few more LAKER games."
"BOB MOORE is a one of a kind guy," Managing Partner NORM PATTIZ said. "I’ve known him since the '70s when he followed me as the sales manager of KCOP-TV in LOS ANGELES. I hired him at WESTWOOD ONE because I thought anybody who could sell KCOP in the '70s could sell anything. He ran my station group in the '90s when we launched PIRATE RADIO in LOS ANGELES and bought WNEW and WYNY in NEW YORK. I have no doubt that BOB will make a huge contribution to COURTSIDE, the radio business and platforms yet to be discovered. They are all going to need programming. BOB will be joining KATIE WALSH and myself as our executive team."
