Talkhouse and Osiris Media are excited to announce a new sales joint venture which will be spearheaded by sales veteran Greg Stangel. The JV arrangement will help to expand the two organizations’ relationships with leading brands and offer more creative, outside-the-box sponsorship arrangements to its respective rosters of musicians, filmmakers, athletes and other podcast talent.
“We’ve admired Osiris for awhile now, so it’s very exciting to partner with our friends there to explore more meaningful ways to get podcast creators paid for their work. Greg brings a very thoughtful, qualitative approach to sponsorship that aligns perfectly with the ethos of this new venture. We hope and believe we can create a better model for independent sustainability in audio and that that’s something we can scale for other independent audio entities,” said Ian Wheeler, president and co-founder of Talkhouse and co-founder of Partisan Records.
Greg has held senior sales roles at iconic organizations across the sports, entertainment and media business, including Creative Artists Agency, Fox Networks Group, Misfits Gaming Group, the National Hockey League, and the New York Mets.
“We have a ton of respect for what Talkhouse has been building, and the way that their team thinks about delivering high quality music and entertainment content to passionate fans,” said RJ Bee, CEO of Osiris Media. “This partnership represents the perfect convergence of our companies’ view on the value we can deliver to sponsors, along with Greg’s track record and hustle, which will serve all of, and our listeners, incredibly well.”
