Pamela Fallon to oversee operations.
The Gridiron Stadium Network, an advocacy group geared toward booking more concerts and entertainment events into National Football League stadiums, has finalized its operating organization.
The GSN has elected an executive board made up of representatives of four of the stadiums. Chairman of the organization is Steve Eckerson of Qwest Field, home of the Seattle Seahawks; vice chairman is Karen Marsch of Ralph Wilson Stadium in Buffalo, home of the Bills; Todd Boyan of FedEx Field, home of the Washington Redskins is secretary; and Jim Sacco of Heinz Field, home of the Pittsburgh Steelers, will act as treasurer for the upcoming year.
Overseeing day-to-day operations and communications for the GSN will be Pamela Fallon, former senior VP of Clear Channel Entertainment's music division. Fallon began her career in 1987 as assistant to the president of Foxboro Stadium, home of the New England Patriots. After leaving Foxboro Stadium, Fallon worked both in live entertainment and politics. In 1994 she joined the Don Law Company before working her way up through the corporate ranks at Clear Channel.
Continuing with the GSN as a consultant is Tom Rooney. It was Rooney's idea that an advocacy organization be formed to better represent modern stadiums.
