TLTQ Ep. 94 - Discoverability: A Candid Convo with Emmy Award-Winner & MTV Talent Executive Vinnie Potestivo
Mandy Moore, The Osbournes, Ashton Kutcher, The Millionaire Matchmaker - behind each media sensation, there was a helluva media/brand strategist - Vinnie Potestivo! As a network talent executive at MTV Networks from 1998 to 2007 (AHH!), he pioneered the way talent and artists claimed control of their narrative by making them hosts, stars, and even producers of their own hit series.
Nowadays, Vinnie leads VPETalent as a media brand advisor, personal brand strategist, and content coach. He is also the host and creator of "I Have a Podcast" and podcast platform Ihaveapodcast.com. PS. Podcasters, you won't believe where he wants us to put our podcasts!
It's a jam-packed, fan-girly but actionable conversation about what it takes to stand out, the importance of mutual respect in collaborations, why Annie would have made a great VJ, and the profound impact MTV had on so much more than just music videos.
(This episode is lovingly dedicated to Kurt Loder, voice of a generation. You are the dang ultimate, Kurt.)
