The Urban Network and the Music Industry’s Quarterly Review Reappear

The R&B Summit and Conference is expected to return with three (3) quarterly magazine issues in 2022.

LOS ANGELES, California, USA, March 17, 2022 / — Urban Network and Music Industry Quarterly (MIQ) magazine, among the most respected and longest-running industry conferences and trade publications, regrouped and renamed to once again serve the music community.

The announcement was made by David A. Mitchell, publisher of MIQ and president of The Urban Network, and Lindsay Guión, president of MIQ, president and CEO of The Urban Network and founder of Guión Partners.

“We are very excited about this new, rebranded business,” said Guión. “The Urban Network and MIQ are legacy brands that remain relevant. MIQ will continue to keep its readers informed about important music industry topics and issues. It will include more visual content and offer more interviews with influencers, executives and music creators.

Guión continued, “In its first year back, The Urban Network will stay true to its name by hosting networking events, namely an R&B summit and conference scheduled for the fall. One of The Urban Network’s goals is to quickly become a full-service brand that caters to the entertainment industry and is relevant from a cultural and lifestyle perspective – fashion, film, television, sports , etc

It’s a homecoming for Mitchell, who said, “The past year has been pretty tough for me. I faced personal health issues. I was a full time caregiver and lost my mother. Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you have to put things on hold. I am thrilled to partner with Lindsay and venture into this new era for The Urban Network and Music Industry Quarterly.

The MIQ editorial calendar contains print issues scheduled for June (Black Music Month edition), September (R&B Summit edition) and December (Annual Songwriter/Producer and Music Publisher edition).
