Hunnicutt Named Big Machine Records GM

As reported via Breaking News, former Big Loud President Clay Hunnicutt has been named GM for BMLG's Big Machine Records imprint. Current GM Jim Weatherson will remain with the company through the transition before segueing to a consulting and "synergy agent" role. "I have worked with Clay Hunnicutt throughout my career on the radio side and record side," says BMLG President/CEO Scott Borchetta. "He is the perfect compliment to our executive team, and I’m sure he will turn great results." Hunnicutt stepped down at Big Loud last month (CAT 7/8) after four years with the label and, prior to that, an extensive executive run at iHeartMedia/Clear Channel. Reach him here and Weatherson here.
