LEVITY ENTERTAINMENT GROUP Dir./Digital RODDY SWEARNGIN is joining podcast technology platform ART19 as EVP/Content. SWEARNGIN helped develop SIDESHOW NETWORK, the comedy podcast network, at LEVITY, which includes the IMPROV comedy clubs and IMPROV.COM.
“Podcasting is an intimate medium that is highly effective for advertising, and ART19’s tools for measurement and ad insertion are helping producers and brands capitalize on that. More dollars in the space will result in more quality content, and that’s great for everyone,” said SWEARNGIN. “I jumped at the opportunity to be a part of a team that is driving the industry forward, and I couldn’t be more excited for podcasting’s continued growth from niche to mainstream.”
