Warner Bros. Records Inc. is an American record label. It was the foundation label of the present-day Warner Music Group, and now operates as a wholly owned subsidiary of that corporation. It maintains a close relationship with its former parent, Warner Bros. Pictures such as distributing the latter's new music subsidiary WaterTower Music, although the two companies are independently owned. Rob Cavallo currently serves as Chairman of the company. Warner Bros. Records was originally established in 1958 as the recorded music division of the American movie studio Warner Bros. Pictures. For most of its existence it was one of a group of labels owned and operated by larger parent corporations. The sequence of companies that controlled Warner Bros. and its allied labels evolved through a convoluted series of corporate mergers and acquisitions from the early 1960s to the early 2000s. Over this period, Warner Bros. Records grew from a struggling minor player in the industry to become one of the top recording labels in the world. From 1999 to 2007, Warner Bros. Records was the official record label partner for cable channel Nickelodeon, and to a lesser extent, its primetime block SonyNet. The contract ended in the summer of 2007, after which Columbia Records succeeded Warner Bros. as Nickelodeon's record label partner.
