Looks like Christmas has come early for John Kinsner. This afternoon, the Walnut Room's former talent buyer, who moved to Los Angeles this past fall, accepted a position with AEG Live at its LA Live Campus as the new production manager for the Nokia Theatre.
As part of his duties, Kinsner, along with the other production manager, Ryan Golden, will be tasked with helping produce the Grammys, American Idol and the American Music Awards, among other events at the 7,100 capacity arena.
