As ALL ACCESS first tipped last night (NET NEWS 10/2), UMG MERCURY/NASHVILLE VP JOHN ETTINGER exited his post after 13 years with the label. ETTINGER joined MERCURY in 1994 and was the CHICAGO-based Midwest Regional until 2000, when he rose to VP status.
ALL ACCESS reached out to ETTINGER last night for his reflection on his run at MERCURY. "What an amazing era with MERCURY. I started by breaking a CANADIAN singer named SHANIA and finished with a dynamic duo from ATLANTA ... SUGARLAND ... who are your next Country superstars. In between there were terrific highs, highlighted by the talented staffs I served with. Thanks most to my dear friends programming Country radio It's been a great, great run."
