iHeartMedia has selected Nashville as the location for iHeartRadio’s second digital headquarters. The plan is for additional jobs to be added at the new location, which will be a new hub for the iHeartRadio digital product team. That team will be making further technology advances in conjunction with its teams in New York, San Antonio, Orlando, and Silicon Valley.
The company says more details about the new office, which will be located in the heart of Nashville, will be announced soon. The Nashville operation is expected to open in the first quarter of 2020.
Nashville is a booming city, currently experiencing a ton of growth in the technology space, with a wide range of companies – from small tech startups to major Fortune 500 companies – all building offices and hubs in the Music City.
iHeartRadio President Darren Davis says this is the right time to expand his digital team. “And what better location than Nashville, given that music is at the heart of our business? Nashville’s technology ecosystem is thriving, and combined with the city’s rich history in music, entrepreneurial spirit, and diverse culture, we believe this is the perfect location for us to extend our digital leadership and recruit highly skilled and passionate candidates for our second iHeartRadio Digital headquarters.”
iHeartMedia CEO Bob Pittman said he’s excited to be expanding into Nashville and tapping into the city’s diverse pool of high-tech and creative, ambitious talent. “As the leading audio company in America, this new facility will allow us to continue to deliver the best content, cultivate even more innovation, and drive further listener growth and revenue opportunities to our advertisers.”
