Warner Music Nashville Appoints Jordan Pettit to Vice President Radio Promotion
Warner Music Nashville (WMN) today announced the promotion of Jordan Pettit to Vice President, Radio Promotion. In this new role, Pettit will oversee WMN's new and additional radio promotion division, "Team WEA"-one of WMN's three radio promotion teams-leading radio efforts on behalf of artists across WMG's country divisions, including Atlantic, Elektra, and Warner Bros. Pettit previously served as National Director Radio Promotion. Pettit will report to Kevin Herring, Senior Vice President and Head of Promotion, who will oversee the entire three-team promotion structure.
In making the announcement, Esposito said, "Jordan is a force of nature. He is a bright and creative executive and I'm thrilled to have him leading our new promotion team to great heights. He has exceptional knowledge of the promotion space and the practical experience needed to successfully work and break artists. Jordan is ready to rock it!"
Herring added, "Jordan is beyond deserving of this opportunity. The choice was obvious considering what a passionate, competitive, and thorough promotion executive he is. I look forward to working with him in his newly expanded role."
Pettit said, "I am humbled and excited for this opportunity to bring amazing new talent to this incredible format. Country Music has been my inspiration since I was just a boy, and I am very grateful to launch the newly created 'Team WEA' with my Warner family - working side by side with my great friends Chris Palmer & Kristen Williams - under the experienced leadership of Kevin Herring."
Pettit and his team will work to amplify WMN's presence in the promotion space, and work singles further into airplay cycles.
WMN's previously existing radio promotion teams-each specializing in their respective designated rosters of artists-will continue to be supervised by Vice Presidents of Promotion, Kristen Williams and Chris Palmer, respectively. Both also report to Herring.
Beginning his career at Columbia Records, Pettit has been in radio promotion for eight years and has worked with some of the top artists in country music, including the early careers of Miranda Lambert, Sugarland, Randy Houser, Eli Young Band and Billy Currington, among others. He has been an instrumental part of Team WAR, successfully overseeing National Radio Promotion for Dan + Shay, Frankie Ballard, Jana Kramer, Charlie Worsham and Gloriana.
