The Behind-the-Mic Story of
For decades, folks had always told our founder, Robb Conlon that he had a "radio voice".
He'd put it to use numerous times over the years in both professional and semi professional ways but life, bills, and other things always got in the way of taking it further than a hobby.
Coming off a massively successful 5 year stint at an Inc. 5000 company, Robb found himself with big opportunities and a truckload of free time after his 2020 contract position at a Major HVAC company was axed because of COVID-19.
Seeing the pandemic devastate America's employment markets and knowing the frustration of the job hunt; Robb resolved to "Lead the Charge to get America back to Work" with his podcast, "Recruiting Hell".
The success of the show and the relationships built with guests who needed professional audio work done formed the earliest foundations of Westport Studios.
Starting a business account at his local bank with the $26 in his pocket not tied up in the family budget, borrowing $4 from the missus to make minimum balance requirements, and expending all his remaining disposable income to found an LLC, Robb went all in on making Westport's Flagship show everything it could be.
Years of hard work later, "Recruiting Hell" has helped its listeners gross more than $1.5 Million in salaries and benefits, and paved the way for the rest of the work Westport Studios does.
The notoriety and attention garnered for "Recruiting Hell" has paid tremendous dividends and allowed us to work with premier companies in the SaaS, finance, legal, and marketing industries.
By partnering with these folks, we've helped make podcasts that drive their business and lead them to partnerships of their own with their ideal customers. Couple this with the thought leadership that comes from having your own podcast and you have a powerful new channel to grow your business.
B2B Podcasting Done Right™ is what we believe in, and whether your business is 10 people in a small local market or 1000 people across the nation, every client receives the same, fierce care as if they were our only customer.
There's much more of the story to be written, and we invite you to be a part of it.
