Panelists include iHeartMedia President of Digital Revenue Strategy Carter Brokaw, National Public Radio General Manager of Podcasts Neal Carruth and United Talent Agency emerging platforms and podcasting agent Oren Rosenbaum.

"The business of podcasting is still so nascent with broadcasters experimenting and producing podcast networks that are leading the way," said Radio Advertising Bureau President and CEO Erica Farber. "This session will help any size broadcaster, audio specialist, and advertiser understand what's working and what you can do to produce quality and revenue-generating podcast content in your local market."

The session will highlight and examine everything from the creative process to successful branding for broadcasters and advertisers, along with monetization and distribution opportunities.

As the general manager of podcasts at National Public Radio (NPR), Neal Carruth fosters programming innovation and the development of new content for NPR's most popular podcasts. He is also responsible for facilitating connections between NPR's podcast portfolio, NPR's newsroom, and NPR member stations.
