Head of Country Music at Pandora
Beville Dunkerley started her career at Nashville's CBS affiliate station, as a news writer and producer. From there, she went on to Music City's famed WSM Radio, where she co-hosted a top-rated morning show. A spontaneous move to New York City resulted in a job wearing many hats at AOL Music: writer, editor, artist relations coordinator, video segment producer, AOL Radio programmer and AOL Video host. While at AOL, she co-founded The Boot, which became the #1 country music site on the web in less than a year. When AOL Music shut down and the Boot was sold, Beville was immediately hired by Rolling Stone and helped the iconic magazine start its very first genre-specific website, Rolling Stone Country. As co-founder and Senior Editor of the site, Beville wrote and edited daily stories, interviewed artists and wrote and produced a daily video series. She left Rolling Stone for Pandora, to become the streaming service’s Head of Country Music. She is now helping artists of all genres get their music to the masses, giving them keys to Pandora’s free marketing tools and pairing them with brands for big events and special projects. Beville is the only two-time winner of the CMA award for Media Achievement (2010 and 2016) and is a four-time honoree at the Nashville Business Journal's annual 'Women in Music City' awards.
