Rick Rubin is now joining the Board of Directors at music-focused blogging network MOG, according to information confirmed this morning.  The move represents another executive stripe for Rubin, who assumed a co-chief position at Columbia Records last year.  MOG, a network of thousands of music blogs, first launched in the summer of 2006.  “Rick has established himself as one of world’s top music producers because he has a great sensibility for what music fans want,” said David Hyman, chief executive of MOG.  “This is a great validation of what we’re building.”

Additionally, MOG is also delivering an advertising platform for its blogging network, part of a continued expansion.  The MOG Music Network, or MMN, already includes thirty affiliate sites, according to Hyman.  “The inspiration for the MOG Music Network came directly from music bloggers; they wanted to write once, and publish multiple times – simultaneously on their own blogs and throughout the MOG network,” Hyman said.  “We delivered that capability as well as the opportunity to generate ad revenue.”
