Eric Nuzum loves hearing stories and telling stories. He is the Senior Vice President of Original Content Development at Audible, where he is building the next generation of premium spoken word listening.

Before coming to Audible, Eric was the Vice President for Programming at NPR. While there, he created a number of well-known shows, like Invisibilia, TED Radio Hour, and Ask Me Another. Eric also managed NPR’s relationships with a lot of beloved public radio programs, like Car Talk, Fresh Air and Radiolab.

Outside of building great audio experiences, Eric has written three books. A polemic against music censorship (Parental Advisory: Music Censorship in America), a cultural deep dive on vampires (The Dead Travel Fast: Stalking Vampires from Nosferatu to Count Chocula), and a memoir entitled Giving Up The Ghost: A Story About Friendship, 80s Rock, a Lost Scrap of Paper, and What It Means to Be Haunted.

Otherwise, Eric wastes a lot of time arguing with his friends in bars, reading, listening to music, riding his bike and playing one mean game of Canasta.

Nuzum is a panelist for “The Podcast Boom: Prospects for news organizations” at ISOJ 2017 (April 22 at 11 a.m.)
