Bob Shannon Named Executive Director Of The Conclave
November 15, 2012
Veteran broadcast executive Bob Shannon has been named as the new Executive Director of The Conclave. The announcement was made by Mark Bolke, Chairman of the Conclave Board of Directors. Shannon succeeds TomKay, and will be the organization's second-ever Executive Director.
Bolke said, "There obviously is no replacement for Tom Kay and his shaping the Conclave organization for the past 37 years. The executive selection committee was presented with a list of excellent candidates from which to choose. Bob Shannon represents the consummate broadcasting professional with a shared vision and passion to move the Conclave into a new era. We are thrilled to name him as our new Executive Director."
Shannon commented, "As a student of radio I've long admired Tom and what he's done at the Conclave. Moving forward my goal is to build on his vision by expanding our online activity and looking very closely at how radio and our learning conference is addressing changes in media. This is a very exciting time, ripe with opportunities for those who know how to create compelling content. Stay tuned!"
Shannon, whose consulting company bobshannonworks is based in Minneapolis, is the President of SpotMediaServices, a former EVP at TM Century and the author of Turn It Up! American Radio Tales 1946-1996.
