BMI presented its Ambassador Award to Joe D’Angelo at the BMI Licensing Customers and Partners VIP Reception during the recent Key West Songwriters Festival.
The BMI Ambassador Award is given to an individual or company that has shown recognition, continuous support, and promotion of Nashville’s vibrant songwriting community.
D’Angelo, who has actively supported BMI for over 15 years, has played a critical role in the success of various BMI events and initiatives, including the Key West Songwriters Festival, the Maui Songwriters Festival, and various other BMI focused events. He has helped to use HD Radio’s platform to create a place for songwriters to highlight their craft and provide an outlet for fans to hear the stories behind their favorite hits.
The event featured comments by BMI’s Mason Hunter and previous Ambassador Award recipient Storme Warren.
“It is only fitting to recognize Joe with the BMI Ambassador Award during the Key West Songwriter Festival alongside his broadcast peers, songwriters, and past honoree Storme Warren,” says Hunter, AVP, Creative, Nashville. “Joe and HD Radio have been supporting BMI songwriters through broadcast initiatives and events all over the country for nearly 15 years and his dedication to songwriters is unwavering. Even during the pandemic, Joe was able to create opportunities for songwriters through radio and social media performances.”
As Senior Vice President of Global Radio and Digital Audio for Xperi, D’Angelo is responsible for the global broadcast radio business and product development. As one of the founders of iBiquity Digital, the company behind HD Radio technology, he has over 20 years of experience in the radio technology industry.
