ARISTA NASHVILLE Dir./NORTHEAST Promotion CLIFF BLAKE will segue to sister SONY label COLUMBIA NASHVILLE for similar duties, effective MONDAY, SEPTEMBER 14th. He succeeds DAVID FRIEDMAN, who joined UMG NASHVILLE earlier this MONTH (NET NEWS 9/1). “We are fortunate and proud to have CLIFF join the COLUMBIA NASHVILLE team, and look forward to excessive critical mass together,” said COLUMBIA VP/Promotion NORBERT NIX.
This move is a homecoming for BLAKE, who previously spent five years on the COLUMBIA promo team, from 2006-2011. He later handled NORTHEAST for REPUBLIC NASHVILLE before returning to SONY with ARISTA NASHVILLE last YEAR (NET NEWS 9/23/14). BLAKE will continue to be based in DOVER, NEW HAMPSHIRE.
