In a year when some networks cut back on their upfront presentations, Fuse shone through. Leaving no room for second guessing about the network’s new programming and branding push as home for multi-genre music, Fuse staged a pulsing party featuring Wyclef Jean in downtown New York. Fuse divided the loft space Escape into three living room lounges to reflect different genres of music — pop, urban and rock — and ferried guests to the event in branded stretch Hummer limos. More than 700 guests attended the event, surpassing initial projections, and the party was ranked among the top 10 upfront events by agency executives, according to a JackMyers.com survey.
