BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT VP/Promotion RICK BAUMGARTNER has announced the addition of BRIAN HATFIELD and MEGAN GOOD to the BRE Promotion staff. GOOD will cover the SOUTHEAST, while HATFIELD will handle the NORTHEAST Region.
HATFIELD is set to exit from CLEAR CHANNEL Country WKSF (KISS COUNTRY)/ASHEVILLE, NC, where he spent the last seven years. His resume also includes stops at CBS RADIO Country WYCD/DETROIT, CBS Country WSOC/CHARLOTTE, CLEAR CHANNEL Country WKKT/CHARLOTTE and CLEAR CHANNEL Country WTQR/GREENSBORO.
BAUMGARTNER said, “BRIAN has been looking to make the transition from radio to records for some time. He has been in the mix for several jobs, but the timing wasn’t right. We are thrilled the timing was perfect this time.”
HATFIELD added, “I’m extremely excited to be a part of the BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT promotion team. I feel blessed to be working in a business that allows creative freedom and the opportunity to help talented people reach stardom. I truly can’t wait to introduce our new music to the MDs and PDs in the NORTHEAST … and of course eat some good food.”
GOOD comes to BRE from her position as Promotions Director for the CUMULUS NASHVILLE cluster, including Country WSM-F. Prior to joining WSM-F, MEGAN was Director of Marketing and Promotions for CITADEL Country WKDF/NASHVILLE and Promotions Coordinator/National Sales Assistant for CBS RADIO Country KFRG (K-FROG)/SAN BERNARDINO. GOOD also worked for FIREFLY ENTERTAINMENT, which currently manages TAYLOR SWIFT.
BAUMGARTNER said, “How often can you hire someone who has worked for KFRG-FM, WKDF-FM, WSM-FM, JAMIE O’NEAL and TAYLOR SWIFT? Just once and we did! We are thrilled to have MEGAN joining our team.”
GOOD added, "I am so excited to be joining the BLACK RIVER ENTERTAINMENT family. Their passion for music and dedication to their artists is infectious. I have no doubt that this journey is going to be a fun and challenging undertaking and I’m looking forward to sharing all of the BRE excitement with radio stations across the SOUTHEAST.”
