“It’s aerospace, not the food place.” That’s how Lynn McDonnell introduced herself when she made her first rounds in the label industry – an attempt prevent her last name from becoming “McDonald” in the minds of her new cohorts.
McDonnell will take over as Triple A Editor at All Access Music Group as John Schoenberger retires December 15.
Lynn’s extensive industry background includes stints in the Triple A and Alternative world for Interscope, Time Bomb, The Firm, Reprise, Epic and others. She began her career at Radio & Records as Assistant Country Editor in 1987.
Said McDonnel, “I am beyond ecstatic to join ALL ACCESS as the Triple A Editor. I’ve evolved full circle and landed back home. It feels like family to be working alongside JOEL and SHAWN again. I hope to fill the giant shoes JOHN is leaving, and have a blast at the helm of the format. I vowed to myself that my next job would be my last, and this position is pure serendipity.”
JOHN commented, “LYNN is a tremendous choice as my successor. She is passionate, motivated and has a good heart. She will bring a fresh and different perspective to the role as Triple A Editor for ALL ACCESS. I ask all my friends in the Triple A family to give LYNN a warm welcome.”
McDonnell will report from Saratoga, New York.
