PRX has entered into a new partnership, and announces the formation of a hybrid enterprise called RADIOPUBLIC. The company is focused on "re-inventing radio, and bringing listeners and creators closer together."
Its first task is to build a mobile listening platform that makes listening to podcasts as simple as radio. RADIOPUBLIC is aiming to create a new listening experience, featuring content discovery, exclusive offers, and fan engagement.
JAKE SHAPIRO, founding CEO of PRX, will lead the new venture as CEO. KERRI HOFFMAN, who has also been with PRX since its start, will become PRX’s CEO.
