About Rick Lewis


Rick Lewis was among the first few employees at Audible.com in 1996, following a long career in public radio. At NPR he was executive producer of All Things Considered and helped to develop Morning Edition. He managed stations and networks in Minnesota, California, and Iowa, was a fundraising executive in Florida, and led business development efforts in East Asia for an international satellite broadcasting company.

Like everyone in those early Audible days, he did a little of everything, from content acquisition to user testing; one day he sat down to record the 10 words that would ensure his anonymous fame among countless listeners who love hearing: "This is Audible" and "Audible hopes you've enjoyed this program".

Rick retired in 2012 and since then has lived in the Andes of Ecuador, about 10 miles from the equator.
