Former 20th Century Fox Television executive Jeffrey Glaser (pictured) has been named president of content at audio-on-demand network Wondery.

Glaser joined Fox in 1997 as a drama development and current executive. He was later appointed senior VP of current programming in 2002, and was elevated to executive VP in 2012. The exec oversaw such scripted series as 24 Arrested Development Modern Family and The X-Files.

Glaser’s appointment comes as the Fox-backed venture expands its development slate into the scripted and unscripted spaces. Additionally, Glaser will become a shareholder in Wondery alongside founder Hernan Lopez, who also spent nearly 20 years at Fox, most recently as CEO and president of Fox International Channels.

Specializing in mobile and on-demand audio storytelling, Wondery - which was founded in January – will partner with San Francisco-based technology company ART19, which provides distribution infrastructure to podcasts, networks and media companies.

The company’s technology inserts advertising that targets listeners based on time, location and other demographics.
