CONROY AOK AT AOL BROADBAND

Exec Given Control of New Unit, Promises to Stop Sending Annoying E-Mails
You’ve got Kevin Conroy.

The Senior Vice President/General Manager for AOL Entertainment has been upped to Executive Vice President and Chief Operating Officer AOL for Broadband.

Conroy will finally get a T1 link after all those years on a 28.8k.

He will report to AOL For Broadband, Premium and Platform Services Lisa Hook and oversee AOL for Broadband business operations, managing all aspects of the service.

The exec originally joined America Online to head AOL Music in January 2001. In July 2002, he became GM for all of the service’s entertainment offerings, leading the efforts in games, movies, music, radio, sports, television, ticketing and offering more girth, length and size with one simple click.

Conroy’s programming innovations include First Listen and First View, exclusive worldwide premieres of new songs and videos, as well as [email protected], exclusive in-studio performances and interviews with established and emerging artists.

AOL Music will continue to be overseen by department GM Bill Wilson.

Said AOL Chairman/CEO Jon Miller: "Kevin Conroy has done an outstanding job demonstrating the power of the online medium and the AOL service to both consumers and the industry. He has shown that content matters and established online as a key part of the entertainment value chain. Through his leadership, AOL has helped break new artists, opened movies, debuted new games and provided unique, complementary experiences for scores of major events, TV shows and performances. Not to mention all those e-mails offering Russian mail-order brides."

Said Hook: "Kevin has been a great partner, providing AOL for Broadband with best of breed programming in key categories. He gets things done. He is both highly strategic and an excellent operating executive."

AOL for Broadband launched in March, offering enhanced communication tools, a safer Internet experience and more entertainment selections. This summer a new, improved version will be rolled out.

Commented Conroy: "AOL has made important strides launching and marketing the first online service developed specifically for broadband. Broadband means new opportunities and totally new experiences for consumers that AOL is uniquely positioned to create and deliver. I’m very excited about working with Lisa and the team to realize the true potential of broadband and ensure that the AOL for Broadband service leads the way. And I can’t wait to spam my Buddy List and tell ‘em all about it."
