Top podcast company hires WNYC’s Chris Bannon; we read his tweets

Chris Bannon

One of the movers and shakers of East Coast public radio is moving to podcasting. Chris Bannon will soon take the position of Chief Content Officer at Hollywood based Midroll Media. As a Vice President of WNYC-FM in New York City he oversaw Freakonomics Radio and the station’s top talkers: Leonard Lopate and Brian Lehrer. Bannon also played a big hand in recent transitions for WQXR and New Jersey Public Radio.

I suppose I could crank out a couple of quotes from the Midroll press release on Bannon, but I think his recent tweets are a lot more fun. Here are a few.

On the elderly:

On technology:

On housing:

. . . and the White House:

I’ll bet she’d stand by her man. Anyway, looks like Bannon won’t be trekking to the west coast. He’ll move to Midroll’s New York office’s in March. Midroll serves as the parent company for two podcasting networks, these being Earwolf and Wolfpop. The company sells advertising for around 200 podcasts, all told.
