Finck commented: “What means the most to me is getting to continue to contribute to this team I love. They are big-hearted, never-quit professionals deeply driven by the love of artists and music. Along with format favorites, Tony Smith, Nick Bedding and Buddy Deal, and our amazing field staff, we can’t wait to break Stefano, Bridgit Mendler, Redlight King and ZZ Ward, as well as deliver new hits from Demi, Selena and Plain White T's. My deepest thanks to Ken Bunt for this opportunity, as he leads Hollywood Records and the Disney Music Group into its next exciting chapter.
