Tyler Greene is the CEO & Creative Director at The Story Producer, a live event production and creative consulting business that specializes in live podcast events and theatrical, story-driven experiences.
Before starting his own business, Tyler was the local leader for The Moth storytelling events in Chicago, as well as the House Manager for the wildly popular NPR news quiz, Wait, Wait, Don’t Tell Me! He also spent 8 years managing events and experiences for WBEZ 91.5FM & Vocalo 91.1FM including live podcast shows, theatrical collaborations with award-winning journalists and experiential marketing projects like the Chicago Chef Battle and the Winter Block Party. Tyler helped launch the first-ever Chicago Podcast Festival in his role as Artistic Director and created a three-day podcast festival at Steppenwolf Theatre Company called Sounds Like Chicago that featured local podcasters, artists and musicians.
Tyler is most proud of launching the WBEZ Podcast Passport event series with WBEZ, which continues to bring national podcast productions to Chicago audiences. Through this series, he’s worked closely with shows like Freakonomics, Ear Hustle, Buzzfeed’s Another Round, WNYC’s Death, Sex & Money and Nancy, Hello from the Magic Tavern, Reveal with Al Letson, The Axe Files with David Axelrod and NPR shows like NPR Politics, Code Switch and Pop Culture Happy Hour.
In what spare time he has left, Tyler stares at his new son, cooks for his husband, plays tennis and vows to one day read all of the “personal development” books he’s collected.
