Norman Pattiz is the founder and the current CEO of PodcastOne. He has invested in the media industry for the past few decades and has received many accolades and awards for his exemplary work in the media. His companies have created shows that have starred many of Hollywood’s greatest stars, and he was recently on Forbes Magazine for these accomplishments. The first of the media distribution companies that he created was WestwoodOne. The content that he creates is about various topics including lifestyle, entertainment, talk shows and many other things.
WestwoodOne has been in existence since the eighties. They have distributed content to companies such as CBN, NFL and CNN radio. They have been very successful in the creation of content that gathers huge followings within no time. One of the values that he believes have helped him succeed in investing and succeeding at it, is ensuring that he woke up earlier than everyone else, stayed active and engaged and then became the last to sleep at night. He strongly believes that this is what set his businesses apart from all the others.
The companies that he founded have achieved tremendous growth over time. A few years ago, he studied the market and realized that a lot of the talent that was in it had not found proper opportunities to showcase their gifts. The creation of PodcastOne was his response to this gap. The company specializes in the production of on-demand audio services. The stars that have been produced under PodcastOne include Snooki Polizzi, Laura Ingraham, Chris Jericho and many others. Norman is indeed the invisible hand behind most of the great hits that have been produced in Hollywood over the years.
There are many accolades, honors and awards that he has received as a result of his efforts in the media industry. He has been an innovator and problem solver for a very long time. He was once appointed by the president to be a member of the broadcasting board of governors. The broadcasting board manages companies such as The Voice of America, Radio Free Europe, and other governmental broadcasting services.
