ALL ACCESS is pleased to promote Editorial Assistant KAREN GOODNER to Assistant Country Editor of the ALL ACCESS/NASHVILLE office.
GOODNER, who joined ALL ACCESS in SEPTEMBER 2009, replaces MARY LYNNE O'NEAL who has been with the company since OCTOBER 2007, and leaves to join COLD RIVER RECORDS in a Regional Promotion post.
ALL ACCESS/NASHVILLE Editor JIM ASKER commented, "MARY LYNNE has been a stellar member of the ALL ACCESS team for four years now and her growth in that time period has been an amazing thing to watch. She will charge up any team she becomes a part of, so our loss, is COLD RIVER's and KATIE ARMIGER's gain. We wish ML all the luck in the world in both work and life.
"And with the departure of ML comes the good news of getting to reward KAREN GOODNER with a much-deserved and earned promotion. KAREN has ramped up in her position as quickly as I have ever seen anyone. And when you work for JOEL DENVER, the term 'multi-task' means you're having an easy day! But KAREN masters all the different facets of her position and I am pleased that she will be promoted. Congrats to her."
COLD RIVER label head PETE O'HEERON told ALL ACCESS, "I've always been impressed with MARY LYNNE's passion for music and the energy with which she commits herself to projects. We are really excited to have her join the COLD RIVER team and we feel lucky to now have that same passion focusing on our artist, KATIE ARMIGER."
ALL ACCESS President JOEL DENVER added, "It's been so great to work with MARY LYNNE for all of this time and watch her grow into an awesome promotion person with great radio friendships. And, she's passed along so much of her knowledge and her skills to KAREN, who is more than ready for the promotion and duties that go with it. My best to ML and KAREN."
MARY LYNNE said, "I am so thankful to JOEL & RIA DENVER, JIM ASKER and the entire team at ALL ACCESS for their support as I move on to the next chapter in my career. ALL ACCESS was my first full time job in the music business after graduating college and my entire tenure was such an amazing learning experience for me! I look forward to seeing what the future holds." Reach ML at email@example.com, or (903) 926-0625, beginning MARCH 7th.
GOODNER noted, "I'm thrilled for the opportunity step up to the Assistant Editor position in the NASHVILLE office with ALL ACCESS. I know we all wish MARY LYNNE the best in her new adventure and I am excited to try to fill her shoes here! It's been great working with JOEL DENVER, JIM ASKER and the ALL ACCESS team and I am ready for this next chapter!"
