Ryan Star CEO of Stationhead on Social Audio and the Evolution of Media Creators – Voicebot Podcast Ep 223
Ryan Star is CEO and founder of Stationhead, a social audio app that enables anyone to start their own social, global radio program. He is a recording artist that got his big break playing at CBGBs in New York in the 1990s and then opening for Bon Jovi when he was still in high school. Today, he has more than 40 million plays on Spotify and around 200,000 monthly listeners.
Ryan has worked in entertainment long enough to understand where there are gaps for creators, particularly those that haven’t hit it big yet. That led him to create Stationhead in 2017. While this could be a big platform for artists and BTS did successfully use the app in a recent single release. However, the real innovation is that Stationhead enables anyone to have their own global radio station. It is an app that create a million DJs. Some Stationhead show DJs have had over 200,000 concurrent listeners on their shows and successful monetization. It is a different angle on social audio and a fascinating conversation.
