After nearly a half-decade of helping Warner Music Nashville artists achieve chart-topping singles as a regional manager, Shari Roth has been promoted National Director, Radio & Streaming (Team WEA). Her roster includes A Thousand Horses, Devin Dawson, High Valley, Ingrid Andress, Kenny Chesney, Michael Ray, Morgan Evans, Ryan Griffin and Tyler Braden. Roth will report to VP Radio Tom Martens.
“Shari has been an incredible asset to the WEA team since day one,” Martens said. “Her experience in the industry is invaluable, and her connection to our artists and their management teams is unparalleled. Between her relationships and her fighting spirit, Shari is the best person to lead the charge.”
Added SVP Radio Kristen Williams, “Shari knows what needs to be done and will get it done. She’s no fuss but a lot of fun. We’re incredibly lucky to have her – and the world is lucky that we’re getting one more crazy-driving regional off the road!”
In addition to five years as a regional manager at Warner Music Nashville, Roth spent more than six at BMLG between Republic Nashville and The Valory Music Company. The longtime Chicago resident will relocate to Nashville in 2021.
“This is a tremendous honor,” Roth said. “I've worked in country promotions for more than 15 years, and this is the best promotions team that I've had the pleasure of working on. We are a close-knit group that consistently excels. I love learning and challenging myself, and I will continue finding creative ways of instilling that passion and creativity into our great team to deliver even more airplay for our unbelievable artists.
