CEO Bob Pittman signaled the return of large-scale in-person events during a recent earnings call. “We’re excited that we have begun to bring back in-person events,” Pittman remarked. “As COVID-19 restrictions are being lifted, we have started to plan for in-person events on a case-by-case basis. The consumer demand is as strong as ever and we expect the iHeartRadio Music Festival in September and the iHeartRadio Jingle Ball tour to be live and in person this year.”
