Over at Venture Nashville Connections, Milt Capps has a snapshot of MyPro, the startup digital video platform that aims to give athletes and celebrities an outlet for their stories. Founder Andrew McGarry has raised $1.5 million so far and is aiming for a good bit more in the coming months. Potentially down the road: an IPO that would involve McGarry retaining a majority stake. Check out the story here.
In an effort to convey quickly to consumers and content producers the nature of MyPro, the company often uses such phrases as: "If Instagram, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon had a baby, it would be MyPro."
McGarry also notes that, unlike Facebook at that company's inception, MyPro can execute its launch with heavy upfront reliance on today's wide range of social media, aiming from the outset at a mass consumer market.
We know Nashville is hot — whether the industry is health care, real estate or music. It's also gaining stature in the TV world, it appears: Jack Black and Dwight Yoakam are reportedly teaming up to executive produce Belles & Whistles, a Fox comedy-with-some-music series set in Music City. Adam Gold with the Scene passes on the info here.
Hollywood-based graphic novel publisher Humanoids has contracted with Ingram Content Group to break into the book trade for the first time. The company, which was launched four decades ago, is aiming to get some of its worldwide properties to a wider U.S. audience.
Veteran music writer Craig Shelburne has been hired by MusicRow to be the publication's first-ever general manager. Shelburne spent more than a dozen years at CMT, which he left early this year before taking a contract job at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum.
Bradocasting group Cumulus Nashville has named general sales managers for its big WKDF, WSM-FM and WQQK stations. Rhonda Rollins, who has more than 23 years of radio experience, will lead the sales efforts at country stations WKDF and WSM. Rollins had previously held the same role at WQQK, Cumulus’ urban adult contemporary outlet, since 2011. Her spot at WQQK has been taken by Lori Tournay Liggett, who has moved to Cumulus Nashville from CBS Detroit, where she was general sales manager for a Top 40 station.
