The Urban Network and MIQ, two of the most respected and long-running industry conferences and print trade publications, have regrouped and rebranded to explore exciting new ventures for the music community.
In the near future, customers of both companies can expect that The Urban Network will keep its readers informed about important topics and issues in the music industry. It will include more visual content and offer more interviews with influencers, high-ranking executives, and music creatives to serve the music community at its fullest.
As part of a long-term strategy, The Urban Network aims to become a full-service brand that caters to the entertainment business and is relevant from a cultural and lifestyle perspective–fashion, film, television, sports, and more. When asked about the new joint venture, Lindsay Guion, President of MIQ, Chair and CEO of The Urban Network, and Founder of Guion Partners said, “We are very excited about this new, rebranded venture. During its first year back, The Urban Network will stay true to its name by organizing networking events, namely an R&B Summit and Conference scheduled for the Fall.”
David A. Mitchell, Publisher of MIQ and President of The Urban Network is also thrilled about the partnership, saying “The past year has been quite challenging for me. I’ve dealt with some personal health challenges. I was a full-time caregiver and lost my mother. Sometimes life throws you a curveball, and you have to put things on hold. I’m excited to partner up with Lindsay and venture into this new era for both The Urban Network and Music Industry Quarterly.”

About The Urban Network and Music Industry Quarterly
The Urban Network was launched in 1988, primarily as a music trade magazine and conference. Under its presidents, the late Jerry Boulding and Miller London, the brand was a dominant and well-supported platform, sponsored and endorsed by major and independent record companies, urban radio and retail, publishing companies, DJs, A&Rs, artist managers, attorneys, and numerous industry insiders. Thanks to Arthur Mitchell, the conference continued to run under the banner of The Urban Network Digital until 2018. David Mitchell launched MIQ back in 2009, picking up where The Urban Network publication left off. Over his 35-year music industry tenure, he has co-produced the Music Conferences and interviewed hundreds of the industry’s most important figures, including Jon Platt, L. A. Reid, Cathy Hughes, Erykah Badu, Stevie Wonder, LL Cool J, H.E.R., and Kendrick Lamar.
