Pittman to Keynote NAB2008 Radio Luncheon
Washington, DC - Dec 7, 2007 - Robert Pittman, former COO of America Online and founding member of media investment firm Pilot Group, will provide the keynote speech during the NAB2008 Radio Luncheon on April 15. Pittman led the programming content team that created the MTV cable network and helped launch the music video industry. As CEO of MTV Networks, Pittman oversaw the growth of MTV and the expansion of the company into international markets. It was during this time that MTV Networks became the first profitable cable network group, a status that was held throughout Pittman's tenure at MTV.
In 2003, Pittman founded Pilot Group, a consumer brand-focused, private investment firm based in New York. The company's investments include Double O Radio, a privately held corporation with radio stations in New York, South Carolina, Florida, Texas and Missouri. Pilot Group also has investments in broadcast TV, various Internet products and services, a research company, and a specialty retail chain. Prior to Pilot Group, Pittman served as both CEO of Time Warner Enterprises and president and COO at America Online. He began his career in radio at age 15, when he worked as an announcer at a Mississippi station. Pittman moved on to program radio stations in Pittsburgh, Chicago, and WNBC in New York City, NBC Radio's flagship station.
