REPUBLIC RECORDS has appointed ROB HARVEY Sr. Dir./Top 40. He will handle the format for all stations west of the MISSISSIPPI. After 13-and-a-half years in radio promotion at INTERSCOPE/GEFFEN/A&M RECORDS, HARVEY will liaise directly with stations on behalf of the label, and continue to cultivate REPUBLIC’S ubiquitous presence at the format and drive it as an influencer.
"Breaking new artists is REPUBLIC’S legacy," he said. "And there's nothing more exciting than taking a new artist to radio and watching that act connect. MONTE and AVERY LIPMAN, and the entire team, are smart, very smart. Everyone is focused on collective goals, and the company truly works as a team. All hands on deck, and goals are achieved strategically and creatively using modern, forward-thinking methodologies, as well as traditional ones. Simply stated, REPUBLIC is at the forefront of the industry and of pop culture, and it's an incredible place to be. I want to thank MONTE, AVERY, CHARLIE, DAVID, GARY, DENNIS and TOBY for this opportunity, as well as BRENDA ROMANO and CHRIS LOPES at INTERSCOPE for their amazing guidance and support over the years."
"I find ROB to be a very impressive music executive," CHARLIE WALK said. "We share a similar passion for music and introducing the world to new artists. He's proven himself at radio again and again, and we're confident in his ability to help elevate us to the next level at Top 40."
