Industry vet elected new chairman

Jack Sander, broadcasting biz veteran and former vice chairman of Belo Corp., has been elected chairman of BMI’s board of directors.

Sander will serve a three-year term as chairman of the board governing the performing rights org that reps more than 350,000 songwriters, composers and publishers. He succeeds Cecil Walker, who continues to serve on BMI’s board as presiding director.
