It flew under the radar of most music publications, but the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame made a huge announcement as they added five new members to their Board of Directors.
Michele Anthony (Executive Vice President Universal Music Group)
Jody Gerson (Chairman & CEO Universal Music Publishing)
Pam Kaufman (President Viacom/CBS Consumer Products)
Jon Platt (Chairman & SONY/ATV Music Publishing)
Pharell Williams (Artist/Producer/Entrepreneur)
The RRHOF Board Chairman, John Sykes, brought this group in, and it is a strong step towards his mandate to have more diverse representation as it includes three women and one African-American.
What this means going forward is still up for discussion.
As always, we will be watching!
