LOS ANGELES (PRWEB) February 07, 2019
Peter I. Morris, longtime media and business development executive, is joining PodcastOne as CEO, effective today. In the new role, Morris will manage all day-to-day operations, while exploring growth opportunities, strategic partnerships and new content initiatives for the audio on-demand leader. He joins the management team led by Executive Chairman, Norm Pattiz, and President, Kit Gray.
“Personally, I’m a huge fan of podcasts and strong believer in the power of the fan communities this medium champions,” said Morris. “The opportunity to work with a legend like Norm Pattiz at PodcastOne, a market leader, is one I couldn’t pass up. I look forward to leading PodcastOne’s evolution and next chapter of growth.”
Pattiz said, “I was introduced to Peter a short time ago by a mutual friend when I was looking for a consultant to put some fresh eyes on our business. Over the last month, it became obvious that we were both interested in working together to build PodcastOne. His background at Barstool Sports, Funny or Die and Imax are wonderfully compatible with our plans to take advantage of what’s going on in podcasting today. I couldn’t be more pleased.”
