Episode 99: Staxx Williams

Posted on Posted in Blog, Podcast, The Producers Podcast

staxxIt was not quite ONE year ago today when one of the highest profile Imaging jobs on earth opened up. Dave Foxx left iHeart/NYC – Z100 and KTU – after almost (or more than??) 30 years on the job.  I immediately started asking some friends on the inside (including Dave) who would, or could, take the gig. It was pretty quiet for a while. Turns out there were actually many solid names being tossed around.  Then in about April of 2016 the news was made official.  Staxx Williams was dubbed the new Imaging Dir. at iHeart NYC servicing Z100 and KTU. And now, finally, he gets to be on a podcast to talk about it!

But seriously he was nice enough to donate his time to my cause and discuss EVERYTHING that went into the move, the search and some of the obstacles to getting started.  Plus we went into his radio career from the beginning, his upcoming session at The Imaging Days in Amsterdam and what else he possibly has time for!

BONUS: My old friend Ian Sturgeon has started a podcast!  I just got the info so I’ll discuss it a little on the next show but didn’t want you to be left out. So go see what he has going on in the podcast land!  It’s called “Making Wavs” and it seems pretty cool! Link: http://makingwavs.libsyn.com/podcast
