Nectar Radio Networks, a service of Nectar Media, LLC, has named Bob Newton as Vice President of Operations, overseeing Nectar’s multiple National compensation networks and their more than 800 affiliate radio partners. After formally joining the company in December of 2018 as Vice President of Sales, Newton has been largely responsible for fueling exponential growth within the company. He will now add day -tto- day facilitation of Affiliate Relations, with additional support from Nectar’s long-time partner, Westwood One.
Founder & President, Marcus Rowe, comments, “Our networks have grown so large and so rapidly that it is no longer possible to operate the way we have been operating. We’re expanding our team in order to maintain the same close relationships we have always had with our stations and their owners. Bob has proven to be an invaluable asset to both Nectar and our radio partners. Additionally, our long-standing strategic partner, Westwood One, will be taking on more of the back-end operations for Nectar Media that our in-house team and I have traditionally handled. We are committed to making sure that Nectar continues to set the standard in customer service and on-time payments.”
Rowe adds, “After pouring my energy and passion into building Nectar Radio Networks into a successful company over the last 12 years, I’m going to take a step back and try to relax a little. I’ll continue to be involved in the business, but my wife and I are ready to spend more time with our three adult children, our four rescue dogs, and our first granddaughter, who is scheduled to arrive in July.”
