PodcastOne expands sales force with VP East Coast

amy lewis schachter 200x200PodcastOne announced that Amy Lewis Schachter has joined the company in the role of Vice President, East Coast Sales. Schachter will be stationed in New York.

It is the latest expansion of the podcasting network’s sales staff after a 30% equity investment by Hubbard Radio in August of last year. At that time, Chairman and CEO Norm Pattiz told RAIN News: “You don’t raise money without telling people how you’re going to use it. We’re going to hire more people in sales and marketing.”

Schachter is making the leap from radio to podcasting after 20 years with CBS where, in 2013, she was named Digital Sales Person of the Year in 2013.

“I am so excited to be joining PodcastOne,” said Schachter. “On-demand digital content, and podcasting specifically, continue growing rapidly. It’s a great time to get into this space and create new business opportunities.”

In one of her first PodcastOne public appearances, Schachter will be a featured speaker at the RAIN Streaming Audio Advertising Summit in New York, June 2 at the Metropolitan Pavilion.
