SCA’S LiSTNR has announced the appointment of Nic McClure to the newly created role of Senior Executive Producer – LiSTNR Original Podcasts.
In the role, McClure will develop and produce new original podcasts and oversee news-based podcasts such as Your Morning Agenda and The Briefing. In addition, she will play an important developmental role with onboarding new podcast producers and working with the current LiSTNR Original Podcast producer team.
McClure will report to Sam Cavanagh, LiSTNR’s Head of News and Entertainment Original Podcasts and Jennifer Goggin, LiSTNR’s Head of Specialty and Feature Podcasts.

Commenting on her new role, Nic McClure said, “while audiences are consuming digital audio at an accelerated pace, I’m really excited to be a part of SCA’s digital transformation myself. To be creating new and compelling content and helping develop our talented LiSTNR Original Podcast team with (General Manager Digital Audio) Grant (Tothill), Sam and Jen, well, what a force to be reckoned with.”
