Podcast Vet Laura Mayer To Lead Podcast Creative At ABC Audio.

Veteran podcast creator Laura Mayer has joined the ABC News team as Executive Producer of Podcast Programming at ABC Audio. Mayer, who has run her own shop and hosted the Shameless Acquisition Target podcast for the past year, will be the creative lead for the ABC Audio podcast team.

In an email to staff announcing the hiring, ABC News president Kim Godwin said the network has “big plans for 2023” including the launch of a new true crime series next week and the return of the Life Out Loud with LZ Granderson podcast later this month.

In her new role, Godwin says Mayer will work closely with Director of Podcast Programming Josh Cohan to develop ABC Audio’s content strategy and then implement that strategy with the production team, overseeing the process from greenlight to publish. Mayer will report to Liz Alesse, Vice President of ABC Audio.

Mayer launched her own podcast studio LRM Works a year ago. Prior to that she was Head of Creative and Editorial and Chief Operating Officer at Three Uncanny Four where she was a cofounder with Sony Music Entertainment. Earlier, Mayer was Director of Production at Slate’s Panoply Media during a two-year run at the company and served as executive producer of New Show Development at Stitcher. She also spent five years as a producer at “New York Public Radio” WNYC New York (93.9/820), working on many programs such as “On the Media.”
