REPUBLIC NASHVILLE has tapped promotions veteran CLIFF BLAKE as the label’s new Director Of Northeast/Midwest Promotions. Based in DOVER, NEW HAMPSHIRE, CLIFF will start his new chapter on MONDAY, OCTOBER 3rd. He replaces SHARI ROTH who resigned. Most recently CLIFF was at COLUMBIA RECORDS/NASHVILLE, also in the Northeast.
"Timing is everything and this is perfect timing for me to join SCOTT BORCHETTA, JIMMY HARNEN, MATTHEW HARGIS, and the whole REPUBLIC NASHVILLE team. I can't wait to add my enthusiasm to the momentum they’ve built for MARTINA, THE BAND PERRY, SUNNY SWEENEY and ELI YOUNG BAND. I’m glad to be back to serve these artists and give my friends at Country radio the kind of support and products that will help keep their audience growth rolling,” said BLAKE.
“We are very excited to welcome CLIFF BLAKE to the REPUBLIC NASHVILLE family,” said National Director Of Promotion MATT HARGIS. “CLIFF is a seasoned pro and his numerous industry relationships, extensive knowledge of both records and radio along with his drive and passion for Country music will be a huge asset to the team.”
President JIMMY HARNEN also welcomed BLAKE, “Everyone would like to extend our deepest thanks and appreciation to our dear friend and colleague SHARI ROTH for her years of “fighting like an ape” at REPUBLIC NASHVILLE,” said HARNEN. We will miss having her on our team and we all wish her the very best this world has to offer wherever her journeys may lead her.”
