iHeartRadio adds new original podcast of in-depth artist interviews

iHeartMedia announced the launch of a new original podcast. iHeartRadio Presents: Insight the Studio will feature unscripted conversations with an artist about to mark a notable milestone or release new material. Joe Levy, a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and correspondent for Access Hollywood, hosts the monthly show. The debut episode centers on Mike Shinoda, a member of rock band Linkin Park who is releasing a solo album. Inside the Studio will also be aired on iHeartMedia’s alt-rock broadcast stations.

“iHeartRadio is known for its relationships with the biggest musical acts on the planet. With this podcast, we’re taking those relationships to an even deeper, more personal level,” said Chris Peterson, iHeartMedia’s senior vice president of podcasting. “The conversations on Inside the Studio will make fans feel like they’re in the room with their favorite artists as they talk openly about their lives and their music. It’s intimate and it’s real, and we couldn’t be prouder to introduce this series to fans everywhere.”
