ALL ACCESS was saddened to hear the one of the industry’s pioneer promotion executives, JOEY BONNER, passed yesterday (7/8). BONNER’s career path goes back more than 30 years to the old BRUNSWICK RECORDS. He was one of the first African-American national promotion men.
BONNER had been in semi-retirement in FLORIDA for the past two years. His son, LARRY KHAN, is currently SVP/Urban Promotion & Marketing at JIVE/ZOMBA RECORDS, based in NEW YORK. Our condolences go out to all of JOEY BONNER’s family and many friends. Funeral arrangements have not been finalized at this time.
