Dunn Named Publisher of 'Multichannel News,’ 'B&C’

Larry Dunn, 49, has been named publisher of Multichannel News and Broadcasting & Cable.

“As we solidify our leadership in print and accelerate our high growth online and events businesses, Larry brings the energy, market knowledge and customer focus to drive our continued success,’’ said Jeff DeBalko, president of Reed Business Interactive.

DeBalko on Wednesday assumed responsibility for the Television Group of Reed Business Information in New York. The group includes B&C, Multichannel News and TWICE, which covers the consumer-electronics industry.

Dunn joined Multichannel News in 1991 as an account executive and was later promoted to director of special projects and associate publisher. In 2003, he was promoted to publishing director of B&C and Multichannel News.

His career includes a stint in broadcasting at WLIR (FM) in Garden City, N.Y., where he sold radio ad time, served as music director and program director, and did the morning-drive show for eight years. Dunn currently hosts a national radio show Saturday afternoons on Sirius Radio First Wave Channel 22.

“I’m thrilled to have the opportunity to advance these market-leading brands,’’ said Dunn. “B&C and Multichannel News are the definitive 'must-reads’ among broadcast and cable television publications and Web sites today and will be as central in the future to satellite, telephone, Internet video and other emerging forms of screen media.”

Group publisher Larry Oliver will be leaving the Television Group of Reed Business Information U.S., effective July 1.

Oliver joined what was then known as Broadcasting magazine in 1991. With Reed, Oliver was publisher of the Television Group from 2000 to 2003, overseeing the operations of B&C and Multichannel News. He rejoined the group in 2005.
