Steve Raizes
Senior Vice President
ViacomCBS Podcasts

Steve Raizes is responsible for working with a broad group of stakeholders across each brand in the ViacomCBS portfolio to define the strategy, marketing, operations and creative needed to develop great podcasts. The portfolio includes brands such as Awesomeness, BET, CBS, CBS Sports, Comedy Central, MTV, Nickelodeon, Paramount+, Paramount Pictures and SHOWTIME Networks.

This role speaks to his background as both a business and creative executive — allowing him to tell stories that create meaningful connections for fans to shows and characters, while also driving revenue and awareness. He is based in the New York City offices (now New York apartments), really enjoys writing about himself in the third person and feels good about not including the words “synergy” or “disruption” in this bio.
