iHeartMedia Selects Nashville To Expand Digital Team
iHeartMedia has announced that it has selected Nashville as the location for iHeartRadio's second digital headquarters. Their first location is in New York. This new location will add new jobs and build on iHeartRadio's continued growth as the top audio platform for consumers across the country.
Nashville--the best known as one of the nation's leading music scenes-also continues to see rapid growth in the technology space, with a wide range of company-from small tech startups to major Fortune 500 companies-building offices and hubs in the Music City.
"As we continue to invest in our ad tech, products, research, sales and content, and further build on the success of our digital service, this is the right time to expand our digital team -- and what better location than Nashville, given that music is at the heart of our business,” said Darren Davis, President of iHeartRadio. ”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.”
“We can think of no better place than Nashville for iHeartRadio to establish its second digital headquarters,” said Bob Rolfe, Commissioner of the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development. “For generations, music has been ingrained in Tennessee’s culture, economy and way of life. iHeartRadio’s new operation is the perfect fit for Tennessee’s growing tech scene, and we’re proud to welcome one of the world’s leading entertainment companies to the Volunteer State.”
More details about the new office will be announced soon. The plan is to open in Q1 2020. The new location will be home to a new hub for the iHeartRadio digital product team and will be making advances with teams in New York, San Antonio and Silicon Valley.
