Tommy Page started his career as a recording artist for Sire Records and topped the Billboard Hot 100 with his single, “I’ll Be Your Everything,” a collaboration with Jordan Knight and Danny Wood of Page’s tourmates New Kids on the Block, in April 1990, before returning to NYU’s Stern School of Business to pursue his career as a music executive. He has recorded nine studio albums and continues to tour.
Page was previously an A&R and radio promotion exec at Warner Bros./Reprise Records, where he worked with Michael Bublé, Alanis Morissette, Josh Groban and Green Day, among others.
Page will join Cumulus Media as senior vice president of brand partnerships, the company announced last week.
The move, which is being positioned as part of Cumulus’ increasing focus on live events, will see Page creating “unique experiential opportunities and custom programs” that will connect brands with listeners of the company’s 460 radio stations, with content distributed by Westwood One to approximately 8,000 further stations. Page will be based in New York City and report directly to Cumulus CEO Lew Dickey.
Page leaves his post as Pandora’s vp of artist and brand partnerships, where his history as a recording artist helped him play a significant role in the company’s recent outreach to the artist and music-business community after years of criticism over its royalty rates. He joined Pandora in 2013 after two years at Billboard, where he was hired in 2011 as associate publisher and was promoted to publisher the following year.
