ST. PAUL, Minn., Aug 5, 2019 – American Public Media today announced new leadership at the helm of its podcast division. Starting August 19, Liliana Kim will take over as managing director of APM podcasts.
As managing director, Liliana will lead APM’s current podcast portfolio, which includes Terrible, Thanks for Asking, Too Beautiful to Live, Brains On, The Splendid Table, The Hilarious World of Depression, The Slowdown and Spectacular Failures.
Liliana was most recently at Viacom, where she was VP of MTV International Content Strategy and Brand Management. She successfully led MTV’s multiplatform content planning and programming strategy, achieving ratings and market share growth yearly.
Prior to joining Viacom in 2010, Liliana oversaw HBO’s product development and digital distribution for the network’s premium content releases. She is no stranger to the public media space either, as she began her career in production at PBS working on the award-winning weekly newsmagazine show NOW with Bill Moyers.
APM is excited for the dynamism that Liliana brings to the table, as well as her ability to lead the company’s position in the podcast industry. “Liliana brings extensive experience with content strategy and brand marketing, as well as business development skills,” said Mike Reszler, senior vice president for Strategy and Experimentation and Chief Digital Officer at APM. “These are going to be essential as we grow our podcast public service.”
Liliana received her undergraduate degree from Wellesley College, where she specialized in economics and political science. She is certified in Columbia Business School Executive Program: Women in Leadership.
