As reported earlier (NET NEWS, 1/4), DISNEY MUSIC GROUP has officially promoted SCOT FINCK to SVP/Promotion. Previously VP/Promotion for HOLLYWOOD RECORDS, FINCK now oversees the creation, development and execution of DMG affiliated artists’ radio campaigns, including terrestrial, satellite and digital radio services.
"I am thrilled that we were able to find the ideal candidate for this very important job within our own organization," MG EVP KEN BUNT said. "I have no doubt that SCOT’s passion and leadership, combined with our incredible promotion staff, will only deepen our successful partnership with radio."
"What means the most to me is getting to continue to contribute to this team I love," FINCK said. "They are big-hearted, never-quit professionals deeply driven by the love of artists and music. Along with format favorites, TONY SMITH, NICK BEDDING and BUDDY DEAL, and our amazing field staff, we can’t wait to break STEFANO, BRIDGIT MENDLER, REDLIGHT KING and ZZ WARD, as well as deliver new hits from DEMI, SELENA and PLAIN WHITE T's. My deepest thanks to KEN BUNT for this opportunity, as he leads HOLLYWOOD RECORDS and the DISNEY MUSIC GROUP into its next exciting chapter. Thanks also to JUSTIN FONTAINE, who built up this great department and leaves an enduring legacy."
