Good episode? Give it some love!
Today's guest is Jody Gerson, a longtime music executive who is currently the Chairman and CEO of the Universal Music Publishing Group. Jody had an early introduction to the music world, frequenting her father's nightclub in Philadelphia, where he hosted acts such as Frank Sinatra and Diana Ross. Soon after college, Jody entered the music publishing world, first at Chappell Music then at EMI. In those early years, she learned that her own sense of taste and ambition was not always welcome, especially as a young woman in the days when the 'Boys Club' mentality reigned supreme. But by simply continuing to succeed and find the best songs and artists out there (such as Lady Gaga and Alicia Keys), she moved up in the ranks, eventually becoming Co-President of Sony/ATV Music Publishing, and now Chairman and President of Universal.
