JUDY LIBOW, an industry professional for over 30 years, began her career in the music business at WQIV, a progressive rock radio station in New York City. Judy’s radio experience and strong industry contacts brought her to Atlantic Records, an association that she enjoyed for 16 years. Rising to a senior executive position as Vice President of Radio Promotion, Judy helped launch and develop the careers of internationally renowned, multi-platinum artists such as AC/DC, Foreigner, INXS, Phil Collins and The Blues Brothers! In addition, she’s credited with helping further the careers of The Rolling Stones, Genesis, Yes, Emerson Lake & Palmer, Stevie Nicks, Crosby Stills & Nash and Led Zeppelin (including Robert Plant as a solo artist). Following her tenure at Atlantic Records, Judy established Libow Unlimited Inc., a national music promotion and artist development company whose clients have included Bon Jovi, Julian Lennon, Midnight Oil, Def Leppard, Styx, and REO Speedwagon.
