iHeartMedia is breaking new ground in Music City. The conglomerate announced that it will launch the second headquarters for iHeartRadio Digital in Nashville. The new location is slated to open in the first quarter of 2020, and will serve as a center for the digital product operations of iHeartRadio. The team is expected to be developing additional advances in technology for the media company. iHeartRadio will be hiring locally for a range of positions, including engineering, product development, and data science.
“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,” iHeartRadio President Darren Davis said. “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.”
“At iHeart we operate as talent first in the same spirit of entrepreneurship found in successful startups,” said Bob Pittman, iHeartMedia’s chairman and CEO. “We are excited to expand our NYC digital team into Nashville and tap into this city’s diverse pool of high tech and creative, ambitious talent. As the leading audio company in America, this new facility will allow us to continue to deliver the best content, cultivate even more innovation and drive further listener growth and revenue opportunities to our advertisers.”
