TRITON DIGITAL COO MIKE AGOVINO has joined COURTSIDE ENTERTAINMENT and PODCASTONE as Executive Vice Chairman.
AGOVINO, who co-founded TRITON in 2006 and as Pres. of KATZ RADIO, Pres./COO of CLEAR CHANNEL RADIO SALES, and co-COO of INTEREP before that, will work with Chairman/CEO NORM PATTIZ, Pres. KIT GRAY, and COO GREG BATUSIC across all divisions of COURTSIDE and PODCASTONE.
“I have long-admired NORM’s leadership style and success in all endeavors, but we’ve never had the chance to work together," AGOVINO said. "The timing is finally right, and this is the perfect opportunity to expand upon everything I’ve learned over the last decade. NORM has spearheaded the reinvention of audio technology and entertainment, and I am excited to join forces with someone for whom I have so much respect, and with a company so well positioned to lead in the on-demand audio space.”
PATTIZ said, “MIKE has been a pioneer in the audio industry and brings a unique global perspective of the digital audio business to PODCASTONE. He shares our vision that on-demand premium content is a key driver in the future of audio, and I look forward to working with him as we continue to build audience and revenue, while creating new opportunities across this powerful and growing platform.”
