AOL ups Conroy in broadband division

Exec to o'see business operations

America Online has promoted Kevin Conroy to exec VP and operating chief of its recently created AOL for Broadband division, putting him on the front line of AOL’s battle to control more of the rapidly expanding audience of broadband Net users.

Conroy, who reports to AOL for Broadband prexy Lisa Hook, will oversee all of the unit’s business operations and day-to-day running of the service. The giant Internet service provider plans to roll out a revised version of AOL for Broadband this summer.

Exec most recently was senior veep and general manager of AOL Entertainment, overseeing games, movies, music, radio, sports, TV and ticketing. He was hired by AOL in 2001 to run AOL Music .

Conroy came to the ISP from the music industry, after heading up worldwide marketing and new media at major label group BMG Entertainment — which he left soon after the ouster of then-topper Strauss Zelnick.
