Posted on: 03/02/2011


Today we’re adding even more names to the long list of speakers set to join us at RAIN Summit West 2011 in Las Vegas. The new additions include big names from TuneIn Radio, AOL Radio and others. Let’s dive in!

First off, radio futurologist, insightful blogger and Managing Director of Media UK James Cridland (pictured right) will appear at RAIN Summit West 2011 (more on Cridland can be found here). He’ll be joined by Lisa Namerow (pictured left), VP of AOL Music Network. Both have appeared in the pages of RAIN often (like when Namerow was spotlighted in AdWeek here) and we’re delighted to have them on board.

We’re also pleased to announce that two RAIN Summit veterans will be returning to RAIN Summit West 2011. Bill Moore (pictured below right), CEO/founder of TuneIn Radio (formerly RadioTime) will appear, as will CEO of BRS Media and DOT.fm George Bundy (pictured left).

RAIN Summit West is the premiere learning, sharing, and networking event of the year for Internet radio — and this year’s Summit is shaping up to be our best ever! It will feature, among a long list of speakers, a unique keynote from CBS Radio President and CEO Dan Mason.

RAIN Summit West 2011 takes place on April 11 in Las Vegas during the NAB Show. You can find out more — and register to attend — right here. We hope to see you there!
