This new Meta platform comes as a result of The Urban Network’s partnership between Chairman and CEO Lindsay Guion (C-Level Executive) and Co-Presidents Lawrence C. Hinkle, II (General Counsel), and David Mitchell (Publisher). The three (3) have rebranded the company and created a place for users to access and exchange information relevant to all aspects of lifestyle and culture, related to music.
The move to digitalization comes after a brief hiatus by the company. Guion, Hinkle, and Mitchell now hope to herald a new era for The Urban Network.
In print form, The Urban Network served the professional music community since its inception in 1988. The trade publication kept readers informed about important issues affecting the industry. It also organized networking events such as The R&B Summit. The company has long been recognized as a leading source of information for musicians, producers and record label executives.
Now, Guion, Hinkle, and Mitchell will launch a new platform and expanded the company’s focus. Beyond creating new revenue streams, the site will give users a more interactive experience with increased access to the important people and trends influencing modern culture and lifestyle. This includes but not limited to politics, real estate, sports, film and television.
As it rebrands, the company will stay true to its roots, continuing to deliver users inside information and networking opportunities related to the music industry.
The Chairman and CEO of the company Lindsay Guion said: “The goal is to provide in-depth interviews with influencers and music trendsetters, and also to provide a careful analysis of topics relevant to music, culture, and lifestyle.”
Co-President Mitchell added: “Change is necessary to stay relevant in today’s world. Musicians are constantly reinventing themselves, and so is the company. We’re wanting to become a full-service brand that caters to the whole entertainment industry.”
