Kerry developed corporate systems to maintain and direct the growth of The Blaze, led corporate teams to develop programming, address growth related issues and media relations, managed large national and international events and consulting projects, led event management team for three national events and two international events, reviewed legal contracts for talent, outside partners and contractors, was responsible for maintaining and strengthening relationships with shareholders, talent, political, corporate and religious leaders and helped launch and then raise millions of dollars in capital for The Blaze.
Kerry was also responsible for leading vendor negotiations, regarding media related services. He even interfaced with CNN Headline News & Fox News teams in collaboration of The Glenn Beck TV show.
Now, Joseph Kerry is no longer associated with TheBlaze, and is instead a partner with Littlecloud Ventures, which is a marketing consulting firm.
Earlier, Chris Balfe, who was Beck’s CEO, and Joel Cheatwood, who was president and chief content officer, also left TheBlaze. Both were responsible for assisting Beck with launching TheBlaze TV.
According CNN, the two men are building a digital media company, in which they will serve as partners.
