Jay Clark Appointed Strategic Advisor at CÜR Media
May 19, 2014

Former Sirius Satellite Radio programming executive Jay Clark has joined CÜR Media as a strategic advisor.

"Jay brings to CÜR Media a combination of innovative thinking and deep industry experience that can help us on many levels," said Tom Brophy, Founder and CEO, CÜR Media. "Jay has led several notable programming radio turnarounds in tier one markets, and has decades of major market programming successes with leading broadcast companies including ABC, Greater Media, CBS, and Entercom. We have no doubt that Jay will help us to deliver a new streaming model, with new offerings that appeal to a broader set of consumers."

The company recently completed a $9.6 million financing round as part of its January 28, 2014 announced alternative public offering. CÜR is developing CÜR Music (www.curmusic.com), a hybrid music streaming service for mobile devices and the web that blends the best of internet radio services like Pandora with on-demand services like Spotify.

"The streaming industry is in need of disruption, and CÜR Media is introducing new models that are pretty compelling to broader markets," said Jay Clark. "I look forward to bringing key insights from my years with traditional and new media, while helping CÜR Media think through the large opportunity that it faces. As streaming revenue continues to climb year over year, we see significant opportunity to innovate and deliver new models that appeal to more people."

The company plans to launch its web and mobile applications in Q4 of 2014.
