Wondery is a podcast company that was founded by Hernon Lopez, the former CEO of Fox International Channels. In January, he left his job running 350 international TV channels for Rupert Murdoch’s 21st Century Fox, Inc. in order to build his Wondery podcast network. It is anticipated that Wondery will release it’s first batch of shows in the summer of 2016. Some newly hired staff have been recently added to Wondery.
Jeffery Glaser, who was previously the head of current programming at 20th Century Fox Television, is joining Wondery as president of content. Jeffery Glaser will own an equity stake in Wondery alongside founder Hernan Lopez. Under Glaser’s direction, Wondery will expand development of both scripted and unscripted programming for its lineup of podcasts.
