May 23, 2011 at 12:22 PM (PT)
Veteran broadcasters BILL PASHA and DAVID PEARLMAN today announced the formation of a new company that will "focus on meeting the modern media content and programming enhancement requirements of over-the-air radio and television broadcasters and digital platform producers, both internationally and domestically." The new enterprise is named MULTIBRAND MEDIA INTERNATIONAL.
PEARLMAN ADVISORS Pres. DAVID PEARLMAN, is a former Co-COO CBS RADIO and previously served as Co-Founder/Co-COO of AMERICAN RADIO SYSTEMS.
PASHA is currently ENTERCOM VP/Programming.
PASHA and PEARLMAN jointly stated, "The goal of MBMI is to meaningfully create value for media concerns across the world and here at home. For more than a decade, the appetite for compelling content by all media enterprises has grown exponentially as new distribution channels have emerged to demand more talent and information fuel. The time is right to establish a multi-platform entity that supports forward thinking, crafts successful operational strategies, generates content, improves programming, and conceives of products that satisfy those requirements."
ENTERCOM SVP/Programming PAT PAXTON commented on PASHA's exit, saying, "It is with mixed emotions that I have accepted BILL PASHA's resignation. For the past seven years, BILL has been an important asset to our company, and I appreciate his significant contributions. Since early this year, BILL and I have discussed his interest in launching his own company, and he is now ready to unveil it. BILL's new enterprise, MULTIBRAND MEDIA INTERNATIONAL, LLC will provide a variety of products and services, including content for digital, mobile and broadcast distribution, and concierge consulting for programming and management in international and domestic markets. I'm thrilled for BILL and his new venture. Through mid-JULY, BILL will help us transition and will be available to answer calls and emails. While his ENTERCOM email will remain in place for several weeks, BILL's new email address is firstname.lastname@example.org. His phone numbers remain the same. Please join me in wishing him great success."
