If you wrote iHeartMedia off as DOA last year, you may have made the call too soon. Last month the radio giant gained court approval for a plan that would allow it to emerge from bankruptcy. Its CEO, Bob Pittman, joined the company in 2010 as an investor when it was still called Clear Channel. His mandate: completely transform the company. A quick glance at a few recent stats suggest how far he’s come: The multiplatform player boasts more than 120 million registered users, is the number one all-in-one digital audio service with more than a billion downloads and is the top commercial podcast producer in the business. Pittman—a co-founder of MTV and one-time CEO of AOL Networks--joins the podcast to talk all things radio, streaming and his remarkable career.
