Phyllis Stark has been named to the newly-created role of Sr. Editor, All Access/Nashville. Stark replaces R.J. Curtis in the position as he segues to Country Radio Broadcasters as Executive Director. She begins in her new role Nov. 5.
In her new position Stark will oversee all aspects of one of the fastest-growing divisions of the company, including the editorial, promotional and sales/marketing efforts with the help of Associate Editor Monta Vaden and Editorial Assistant Athena Puharic.
“When R.J. resigned for this outstanding post at CRB, we had a terrific response to this opportunity. As we moved forward, it became clear that Phyllis was sticking her hand up the highest for this post,” said All Access Pres./Publisher Joel Denver said. I am absolutely thrilled to welcome her aboard. As only the third person ever to run our Nashville office, I feel especially confident that Phyllis — with her deep passion for all things Country, and her years of experience and wonderful relationships with radio, the labels and their artists — will continue the pace of success set by R.J. Curtis and Jim Asker before him.”
“I’m thrilled to be joining the dynamic team at All Access and am so looking forward to communicating with radio and label execs again on a daily basis, as I have done throughout my career,” said Stark. “While R.J. Curtis leaves tremendously big shoes to fill, I’m eager to step into them, and am particularly excited to be leading what is now a dynamic, all-female team in the Nashville office, already staffed by two talented ladies, Monta and Athena. Thanks to Joel Denver for his faith in me, and for the warm welcome!”
Stark has held previous posts at Rare Country/Cox Media Group, The E.W. Scripps Co./Journal Broadcast Group, Billboard/Nashville, CMA’s Close Up magazine, and independent label Robbins Nashville. She has also been a Music Blogger and Feature Writer for MSN.com, as well as Exec. Editor/Country Music, Radio-Info.com.
