BREAKING NEWS: ASCAP Gets A New Member

Word on the street is that longtime industry veteran Sue Drew has been tapped for the creative-membership position at ASCAP. The PRO has been interviewing numerous candidates for months to fill the open position since longtime ASCAP execs Tom DeSavia and Jennifer Knoepfle both exited their posts to work at pubcos Notable Music and Sony/ATV, respectively.  Drew has held executive A&R positions at Elektra and Reprise Records. She recently was an independant A&R consultant working with a variety of artists/projects.
