iHM Expands Podcast Roster with ''Inside The Studio''
|RADIO ONLINE | Tuesday, June 12, 2018|
iHeartMedia launches "iHeartRadio Presents: Inside the Studio," a new podcast series that features intimate conversations with music's biggest stars. The podcast airs its first episode Tuesday with guest Mike Shinoda of the American rock band Linkin Park. "Inside the Studio" will also air this weekend on iHM's Alternative Rock broadcast radio outlets across the country.
Each month, the series will feature a new, unscripted sit-down interview with an artist on the verge of releasing new material, embarking on a tour or celebrating an important milestone -- rounded out with a journey through their lives and discographies. In the first episode, Mike Shinoda opens up about music after the loss of Chester Bennington and shares never-before heard clips of songs from his upcoming solo album, "Post Traumatic," which will be released on June 15.
"iHeartRadio is known for its relationships with the biggest musical acts on the planet. With this podcast, we're taking those relationships to an even deeper, more personal level," said Senior VP/Podcasting Chris Peterson. "The conversations on Inside the Studio will make fans feel like they're in the room with their favorite artists as they talk openly about their lives and their music. It's intimate and it's real, and we couldn't be prouder to introduce this series to fans everywhere."
"Inside the Studio" is written and hosted by Joe Levy, a contributing editor at Rolling Stone and correspondent for Access Hollywood who also makes frequent appearances on The Today Showand CBS This Morning. The podcast is produced by iHeartRadio and Audiation.
"I'm thrilled be a part of iHeartRadio's newest project, which tears down the walls between artists and fans," said Levy. "Speaking with these musicians one-on-one is a dream for listeners, and for me. I want to have a candid, in-depth dialogue about our guests' music and their lives. Podcasts are personal, which is why they're the perfect format for these interviews."
