Launch of World Cafe Nashville

October 2016

When WXPN/Philadelphia launched a Nashville bureau as a Southern US hub from which to gather music and interviews for its NPR-distributed World Cafe program, I invited some of the major players in Nashville's music and media communities to a cocktail reception. During this event, attendees met WXPN/World Cafe staff and learned more about World Cafe from NPR and WXPN execs, and immediately following the reception, attended an exclusive solo performance and World Cafe interview with artist Eric Church. The new Nashville bureau and the event were the source of stories that ran in Billboard, Music Row magazine, and many others.
