BMG Songs Inks Former Senior VP

Karen Conrad signs co-publishing deal.

BMG Songs has inked a co-publishing deal with Karen Conrad who was, until recently, the company's senior VP in Nashville. Under the agreement, Conrad will sign country music writers to BMG Songs. She will also be a consultant to the company's Nashville division.

As previously reported, Conrad exited the company in February and was recently replaced by Ron Stuve, who was promoted to A&R VP and GM.

Conrad joined BMG in 1997 when the company purchased her independent AMR/New Haven Music company.
