As graduation season goes virtual, iHeart is doing its part to give the Class of 2020 the commencement it deserves. A new iHeartPodcast Network series, “Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020,” will feature words of wisdom from big names in politics, entertainment, business, music, and media.
Speakers include former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton; comedians Jimmy Fallon and Chelsea Handler; restaurateur and TV personality David Chang; Goldman Sachs CEO David Solomon; NFL football legend Eli Manning; musicians John Legend and Tim McGraw; journalist Katie Couric; and others.
“High school and college seniors are always in need of inspiration, reassurance and life advice as they head into the next chapter of their lives, and that is especially true this year,” said Conal Byrne, President of the iHeartPodcast Network.
All episodes of the podcast will be released May 15, two days before National Graduation Day. Each speech will also be featured on iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations and reach hundreds of millions of listeners nationwide.
