A pair of media industry veterans has joined forces to form a new venture. Radio and publishing executive CHRIS RUH and longtime record label promotion pro FRANK HIGGINBOTHAM have formed CRANK ENTERTAINMENT LLC. As a show of the unity of their partnership, the CRANK moniker is a melding of the names of its founders, who will focus on the development of media properties across all platforms with a focus on radio.
The duo’s first venture is an alliance with ROGUE ISLAND ENTERTAINMENT to represent and promote the studio’s artists to radio.
"FRANK and I realized that we enjoyed working together many years ago and promised ourselves that we’d one day form a venture that would tap into our complementary talents," RUH commented. "Our partnership with ROGUE ISLAND allows us to do just that."
"CHRIS and I formed some amazing relationships with radio over the years and now we have the chance to renew and enhance those relationships with some truly great music radio is going to stand up and notice," HIGGINBOTHAM added.
