JOHN MCDERMOTT, HEAD OF CONTENT
For ten years I was the Vice President of Comedy and Entertainment for SiriusXM. It was an amazing run where we went from 250,000 subscribers and being called “Cyrus” by many people to the Howard Stern era of 25 million subs. In my corner of the world one comedy channel became two and then ten (and then eight when I thought we could do better by focusing.)
Prior to joining Sirius(-XM) I did ten years in news-talk logging lots and lots of great hours in the studio with folks like Bob Grant, John Gambling and Dr. Joy Browne (which was the #4 show in the country back then behind Stern/Rush/Laura).
After SiriusXM I missed the creative outlet and started AltSportsTalk, figuring out how far we can get with some MacBooks, cool software, good wifi, and some different ideas. If you’ve read this far then I’ll plug my portfolio website at www.johnmcdermott.me where y9u can learn about what I do for Slacker Radio and as VP Programming for DGital Media.
