Author and MTV executive Bill Flanagan will sit down with John Covach, director for the University of Rochester's Institute for Popular Music, on Wednesday, April 29, to talk about his career in the music industry. The talk is part of the Institute's "In Conversation" series. According to Covach, these lectures allow students to "hear about the way the music business works from the successful people who have seen it from the inside." Flanagan has more than 15 years of experience in the industry and currently serves as executive vice president of the Viacom Music Group and editorial director of MTV News.
