Kristen Hosack began her career in music working as the Music Director for her college’s public radio station, KSMC, later moving to an internship post at MCA Records (now Interscope Geffen A&M Records). While in college, she also interned for the legendary concert promoter Bill Graham Presents, and continued full-time after graduation for 4 years. During this time, she worked in the marketing and public relations department, executing ad campaigns for numerous live entertainment, music, and comedy shows in the San Francisco Bay Area, Reno/Tahoe, and Sacramento.
After moving to Los Angeles in 2005, Hosack began volunteering at KCRW as a production assistant during their evening and weekend music programming. More recently, she sat on the “younger generation” executive board of thinkLA and co-produced AdJam – the advertising industry’s version of battle-of-the-bands. Over the course of 5 consecutive years, she transformed AdJam into a top fundraising event for the prominent LA-based non-profit organization.
Hosack now oversees the musical development of Toyota North America’s broadcast campaigns with Saatchi & Saatchi Los Angeles, the award-winning fully integrated creative advertising agency. She also participates in the development of various music strategies across the agency.
