Radel to dance to own tune

Music industry publicity vet Deborah Radel has ankled her post as veep of publicity and artist relations for MCA Music Publishing and has bowed her own eponymous praisery.

The respected Radel, whose position was among those eliminated by publishing chief David Renzer as part of a company-mandated cost-cutting move, was the music publishing industry’s first full-time in-house publicist and artist relations exec.

Radel, who was hired in 1995 by Jay Boberg — then prexy of the publishing arm before his ascension a year later to prexy of MCA Records — is credited with significantly raising the profile of the publisher and getting it out from the shadow of its sister companies at MCA.

Radel’s hire was also a groundbreaking one, as many of the publishing giants have since established in-house publicists as part of the corporate structure.

“It’s always exciting to begin a new career chapter,” Radel told Daily Variety.

Radel, who will divide her time between offices at MCA and her own, will tap her considerable expertise to advance the interests of artists, execs and companies.

Prior to MCA, Radel served in several publicity stints, including as veep for Imago Records and seven years at RCA Records.
