NEIL HAISLOP OFFICIALLY LAUNCHES COUNTRYFOREVER.COM AUGUST 1 TO CELEBRATE
HIS 30 YEARS IN COUNTRY MUSIC
Nashville, TN (July 7, 2008) -Long time music journalist, broadcaster,
author and producer of syndicated radio programs, Neil Haislop, will
officially launch Countryforever.com August 1st, in celebration of three
decades of reporting on the country music industry.
Countryforever.com - a unique "exclusive features, news and
history" site for both country fans and industry professionals - is
the perfect extension of what Haislop has devoted the last 30 years
to."I've amassed a tremendous amount of knowledge from thousands of
interviews with country's greatest, newest and fast-rising stars, as well
as some of the most successful producers, songwriters and industry moguls
of country music," explains the energetic music lover.
Haislop's country journalism career began when he left a job as on-air
News Director for WXIL-FM in Parkersburg, WV, to move his young family to
Los Angeles in 1978. That summer, he was hired as the chief interviewer
and head writer of new content for the growing, L.A.-based, American
Country Countdown with Bob Kingsley. It wasn't long before he became
producer/writer of ACC Specials and co-creator/writer of the daily
feature America's MusicMakers with Bob Kingsley.
Since starting his own company, Country Forever Productions, in 1995,
Neil has co-produced over 560 hours of country superstar programs with
Dick Clark's United Stations Radio Networks. In both 2007 and 2008,
Haislop has produced 15 two-hour Country Giants specials (airing
nationally every weekend from Memorial Day to Labor Day), the annual 3-
hour Country Heroes (salute to the ordinary heroes of America) and
Country Winners specials. He contributes the popular Country
Q&A weekly column for GACtv.com, as well as provides
daily country content to AllAccess.com. In addition, Haislop has
authored the Billboard Book, Country Giants; field-reported
(on camera) for "America's New Country" video show;
served as contributing editor for Country Fever magazine;
hosted the syndicated radio daily feature, "The Answerman
Neil Haislop," and launched "Neil Haislop's Nashville IQ"
prep service for radio and record industry professionals. For the past 16
years, Neil has also served on the Grammy Country Screening Committee.
"The only way I could've done all this was to keep a high
profile in Nashville," says Haislop. "That was made possible by
a lot of airline miles covering CRB and CMA events, supportive PR and
promotion folks and the media corps that has welcomed me to Music City
since my first visit in 1982."
