TuneIn hires new head of hip-hop/R&B

TuneIn has hired DJ Carisma to lead its curation and artist relations in hip-hop and R&B. She joins the audio company after two years as music director for KRRL FM in Los Angeles. She’s also worked as on-air talent for LA radio stations helping to break upcoming artists and encourage the promotion of West Coast rap.

ā€œIā€™m excited to join a company that gives me creative freedom and allows my voice to be heard across so many devices and to really put on for the culture globally,ā€ she said.

TuneIn also hired its first chief marketing officer this spring, bringing on Juliette Morris from NBCUniversal. The company is currently evaluating its next steps, with a potential sale on the horizon.
