Dan Brandy has been named Director of Podcast Operations and Program Audio for Take On the Day, the production company co-owned by radio talk show host Dr. Laura Schlessinger and Geoff Rich. The company produces the show that airs on SiriusXM Radio and also produces several podcasts, including an on-demand version of Schlessinger’s program and the popular Call of the Day podcast. Brandy had most recently been Manager of Podcasting at the company.
“Dan has been critical to the success of Dr. Laura’s Call of the Day podcast, growing it to over 2.5 million listens per month in two years and making it a top 10 podcast in Apple Podcasts Kids and Family and Parenting categories,” said Rich. “It’s a thrill to tap into Dan’s knowledge, experience and creativity,” he added in the announcement.
