BUSINESS ROCKSTARS, LLC, a multi-platform network that showcases both established and nascent entrepreneurs, adds ANDY SCHUON, who has made an equity investment, to its board of directors. SCHUON rejoins longtime collaborator STEVE LEHMAN, Chairman of BUSINESS ROCKSTARS, along with Co-Founder/Pres. KEN RUTKOWSKI, who hosts “Business Rockstars”, the company’s flagship daily radio and television program.
SCHUON is an industry vet, most recently as Co-Founder of REVOLT MEDIA & TV with SEAN “DIDDY” COMBS. After leading the world famous KROQ/LOS ANGELES as PD, and MTV, MTV2 and VH1 as EVP/Programming and Production earlier in his career, SCHUON was CEO of SONY/UNIVERSAL's online music subscription service PRESSPLAY (now NAPSTER). He worked with the world’s top artists as EVP/GM of WARNER BROS. RECORDS, was the Head Of Digital/Pres. Artist Services at LIVE NATION/TICKETMASTER, Pres. of INFINITY BROADCASTING (now CBS RADIO) and has served on the boards of PREMIERE NETWORKS, HOT TOPIC STORES, ILIKE.COM, and COINSTAR/REDBOX’s new ventures.
“ANDY and I have a long history of success together, so his joining our board is a homecoming of sorts,” said LEHMAN. “With ANDY on our Board of Directors, our already rapidly growing entrepreneurial media, mobile and social platform will be kicked into overdrive. ANDY is a world class visionary when it comes to building networks, so we look forward to his contributions as we amplify the culture around entrepreneurial content and programming.”
“I have spent a great deal of my career building networks, content, and media brands on television, mobile, radio, and online,” said SCHUON. “Historically, there have never been more opportunities for entrepreneurs than right now in the digital age. Culturally, they have become revered as today’s rock stars. I am thrilled by the opportunity to shine a light on this culture through the BUSINESS ROCKSTARS platform, while working with my longtime business associate STEVE LEHMAN and super-connector KEN RUTKOWSKI, whose vision and relationships have set the company on a great course.”
