CENTURY MEDIA RECORDS has shuttered its radio promotion division, bidding adieu to Dirs./Radio Promotion TIM BINDER and MIKE JAKUBOW on FRIDAY, APRIL 9th. BINDER had been with the label since JANUARY ’06 and JAKUBOW since MAY ‘08.
Ironically, the duo's efforts led to the two biggest singles in CENTURY MEDIA’s 20-year history (LACUNA COIL’s "Spellbound" and "I Won't Tell You"). "I cannot tell you how proud I am with what we did, especially these last 12 months," JAKUBOW said. "LACUNA and several other core artists are true professionals and I proudly call many of them my friends. Now, I am fired up for the next chapter!"
"It has been great to work with so many amazing artists at CENTURY MEDIA," BINDER concurred. "We sincerely thank all of you at radio who have worked with us to help develop these artists. Mike and I believe the future is bright, and we look forward to working more with all of you."
