BMI brought music and storytelling the to the 2024 Hearst Television Management Meeting held recently in San Luis Obispo, California. BMI songwriter Hugh Mitchell and Randy Bachman, the iconic guitarist and wordsmith who founded the legendary 60s and 70s bands The Guess Who and Bachman Turner Overdrive, entertained the Hearst TV corporate team as well as the general managers of their 35 TV stations who were gathered for several days of meetings and networking opportunities.

Bachman highlighted the closing dinner, which was held at Hearst Castle, the former home of William Randolph Hearst, the entrepreneur, collector, and philanthropist who laid the groundwork for the creation of Hearst Televison, when he put WBAL-TV on the air in Baltimore in 1948. The Canadian icon entertained the audience with an engaging performance that included the stories behind some of his biggest hits including “American Woman,” “No Time,” “No Sugar Tonight,” “Undun,” “Takin’ Care of Business,” “Let it Ride” and “You Ain’t Seen Nothing Yet.”

Mitchell, a Nashville based artist, songwriter, and producer, has had his songs appear in televisions shows and has performed hundreds of shows across the country as an independent artist.
