ALL ACCESS has some exciting news happening from its MUSIC CITY office. Contemporary Christian Editor ALLY CLARK is going to be leaving us to pursue "her music"... geesh, she sounds like an artist already. Her life long passion has been music and songwriting, and she's going after it! In the meantime, ALLY, also a FOOD NETWORK star in training, has much passion for the culinary arts. "I hate to lose Ally but am happy that she'll be pursuing what she loves," said ALL ACCESS Country Editor JIM ASKER. "And since she'll be going to work at a Creole restaurant, we'll probably be seeing her more often than she realizes!"
ALLY will be working at CHAPPY's, a new Creole/Cajun restaurant set to open soon on Church Street in NASHVILLE. "She did a tremendous job for us in both the Country and Christian sections of ALL ACCESS, continued ASKER. "When I was ill last year, ALLY was here for us in a flash to step in, so personally she really means a lot to both KELLY DANIEL and me. And while we wish her the best, we're not letting her go completely, she'll be filling in, in both the Country and Christian departments." She'll be here on a fulltime basis until FRIDAY (4/7). Email ALLY at email@example.com.
And we're happy to announce that industry veteran TAMMY RAGUSA will be taking over as Editor of the ALL ACCESS Contemporary Christian section and she's already in place. TAMMY has been in NASHVILLE for many years and listed on her impressive resume, are stints in the Marketing Dept., at CAPITOL RECORDS
and as Manager/Marketing & Artist Development at RCA. Currently she is running her own marketing and publicity company. "We're obviously thrilled as TAMMY brings her an arsenal of knowledge and relationships here, and to dig into the ALL ACCESS Christian section as Editor," said JIM ASKER.
"I've been very blessed during my tenure in the music industry -- I've worked with the best people in the business. Now I have the chance to enhance that quality list of peers by joining ALL ACCESS and working with JIM, KELLY, and of course JOEL DENVER and the WEST COAST staff. I'm so excited about my role as Christian editor because of the opportunity to blend two of my greatest loves - music and writing. And, the Christian market has expanded to embrace so many sub-genres that it's exhilarating to be a part of it!" Email TAMMY at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Because he's our boss, we gave ALL ACCESS President/Publisher JOEL DENVER the last word. "ALLY has done a great job for ALL ACCESS, and we wish her all the very best in her music and songwriting career. We are most fortunate to have TAMMY joining ALL ACCESS as our new Contemporary Christian Editor. She has a lot of passion for the music, radio, and the Christian community and lifestyle at large. We are looking forward to TAMMY's leadership in the Contemporary Christian formats as ALL ACCESS continues its mission to be the one-stop resource for the radio and music industries' information needs."
