Matt Turck was named Chief Revenue Officer and helped launch The Slate Group’s premium podcast network, Panoply, in January 2015.
Matt was an early experimenter in podcast advertising, starting when Audible sponsored Slate’s Political Gabfest in 2008. He oversaw the development of the industry’s first branded podcasts, partnering with HBO Documentaries in March of 2015. Matt also was instrumental in creating GE Podcast Theater (The Message & LifeAfter), which is still considered the most successful branded podcast program. Today, Matt and Panoply are pioneering advertising audience targeting through Megaphone, Panoply’s proprietary technology.
Prior to joining Panoply, Matt was the Publisher of Slate, where he helped build original journalism into a sustainably profitable business. He spent 20 years with Time Incorporated, holding several prominent positions, including Publisher/President of This Old House and Associate Publisher of Time Magazine.
A native of Michigan and graduate of Michigan State University, he married the former miss Anneliese Lodge. He lives his dream (and hopefully his wife’s dream), spending time in Manhattan while residing in Sun Valley with Anneliese, their two children, fly rod, mountain bike, skis and, of course, his Labrador Retriever, Tug.
