Podcast network Wondery has hired two new executives. First, Laurie Pracher is the company’s new senior vice president of brand partnerships. Pracher was previously senior director of sponsorships for WNYC, New York’s public radio station. Second, Karo Chakhlasyan has been hired as director of audience acquisition. Chakhlasyan joined Wondery in October from podcast buyer Oxford Road.
These aren’t Wondery’s first high-profile hires of the year. In March, the company picked up Jeffrey Glaser as its new president of content.
