RCR! Presents Real Discussions!
Topic: A Conversation with Ken Rye. Aired on September 17, 2017.
Ladies and Gentlemen, please meet Ken Rye ~ The Strategy Guy!
I was fortunate that our schedules aligned and I was able to have A Conversation With Ken Rye on RCR! Presents Real Discussions. This one put me in a humble position because not only was I a fan of his when he was WCLK 91.9 FM here in Atlanta, but he also became my mentor. His early days at the radio station taught him well as he met some of the most influential artists in the business. His radio and business partner Ken Beatty also played a significant part in Ken's life. This year reflects 10 years since Ken Beatty has passed, however, his presence and words of wisdom live with Ken today.
Ken has the ability to constantly see talented, skilled individuals and provide strategic suggestions that take their brand to the next level. He gets it and understands what drives markets, global presence, and brand recognition.
Working for major corporations was his focal point as well as bringing live shows to the Atlanta area. Ken believes that the connections between an audience, the artist, and the music make it all magical.
Now, Ken Rye and I work together in producing live shows and entertainment under his brand Hot Ice Live.
There's so much to say about this guy from his early days in Detroit, growing up in Chicago and then his Morehouse years in Atlanta. Marketing, Strategic Planning and his love for music all make up the man we know and see working with so many today. He's got history, stories and loads experience to paint the picture of Atlanta, various artists and the world of entertainment.
Special thanks to Ken Rye for coming by and spending some time with me. Thanks to Instinct Radio for giving us the space and time to have the interview.
