NATICK, Mass. -- Mall Radio Network, a media and music company with a broadcast network in malls throughout the United States reaching 44.6 million listeners per month, today announced the appointment of two members to its executive team. John Henderson joins Mall Radio as Chief Operating Officer, while David Drucker has joined the company as Vice President of Sales. In their roles, each will bring decades of experience to expand the Company's presence, grow sales, and expand existing client relationships. In addition, the Company announced the promotion of Jim Hughes to Vice President of Programming.

John Henderson brings a wealth of experience to his role as Chief Operating Officer, with expertise in areas including management of sales and marketing teams in traditional and integrated media organizations, and developing marketing, advertising and promotional programs across a diverse range of media. Prior to Mall Radio, Henderson was Senior Vice President at Coolsign Media; from 2001 through 2004, he held key management roles in multi-million dollar divisions of the Sony Corporation. Henderson last served as Vice President, Integrated Sales and Marketing, at Sony Music Entertainment, where he worked with various labels across the company to identify marketing opportunities and partnerships.

He has also served as Vice President, Sales and Marketing, at NBCi, and held various positions with such companies as Walt Disney, NBC, and Turner Entertainment.

David Drucker brings more than eight years of direct experience in the radio and broadcast sales industry to Mall Radio Network. Most recently, Drucker was the Eastern Regional Vice President of Sales at Captivate Networks, a division of Gannett, where he added significant accounts to the company's roster while growing his staff to meet increased advertiser demand. Prior to Captivate, Drucker was General Sales Manager with Metro Traffic, where he led the company to record sales during 2002 and 2003, accounting for nearly 25 percent of the company's revenue. Prior to managing Metro Traffic's New York office, Drucker managed the Boston office, effectively doubling revenue from 2000 through 2002.
