I have written before about how live event production is failing to attract new, young talent and how this industry, particularly concert sound production, continues to “gray”.
The most recent edition of Front of House magazine (one of my favorite trade journals) highlights how some of those concert production pros are redefining their careers in the information age.
Front of House, or FOH is published by Timeless Communications, the leader in trade journal publications for the sound and lighting industry. They touch just about every aspect of hands on production with good articles, equipment reviews and industry news.
In their current edition, FOH announces the hiring of Mark Frink as the new editor. Frink is well known to the pro audio community, having worked with acts ranging from Tony Bennett to Jessica Simpson. He’s worked at the Super Bowl and was involved in Pope John Paul II appearance at Giants Stadium, so he obviously knows what producing a big event is all about.
Congratulations to Mark in his new position. We look forward to reading his contributions. And a tip of the hat to Timeless Communications and FOH for turning to the industry that supports them to provide new talent.
In an business where a retirement plan is about as elusive as perfect sound at every seat in the house, it’s great to see new ideas for a “second act.”
