Matty Staudt has left his role as Vice President of Podcast Programming at iHeartRadio to become President of his new company, Jam Street Media, in LA. The company will focus on podcasts for brands, talent coaching, and consulting for businesses entering the podcast space.
At iHeart, he became radio’s first VP of Podcast Programming — “a culmination of 29 years in radio, eight years in higher education, and 12 years in podcasting,” as he tells it. In his time at iHeart he has helped launch hundreds of podcasts and create podcast networks in every major market in the United States.
In his new venture, Staudt will be partnering up with Jessica Navarro who is currently EVP and Head of Production for Mark Wahlberg’s Unrealistic Ideas. Both partners are producers with a passion for great content.
