Steve Lickteig

His media career began at an AM radio station in Ottawa, KS. Since October 2018 Steve Lickteig is Executive Producer of Podcasts and Audio for NBC News and MSNBC.  He was recruited to the job after building Slate’s podcast portfolio as NBC looked to make a splash in the medium.  So far the network has launched a handful of shows and Lickteig said in May they plan to introduce several new podcasts this year. “I don’t want to put ‘X number’ on it,” Lickteig told Variety. “I don’t want to fall into the trap of ‘we will have six podcasts by the end of the year.’ We want to give ourselves room to pivot if something comes along that we didn’t think of.”
