iHEART'S VIRTUAL COMMENCEMENT 2020

iHeartMedia has announced Commencement: Speeches for the Class of 2020, a podcast event for America’s graduation month featuring commencement addresses from Hillary Clinton, Jimmy Fallon, Chelsea Handler, Halsey, Kesha, DJ Khaled, Khalid, Pitbull, Sienna Miller, Epic CEO Sylvia Rhone, Tim McGraw, Ryan Seacrest, Bobby Bones and more to be announced, to help celebrate and inspire high school and college graduates of 2020 as they look to the future.

Each speaker will share, from the safety of their home, advice, heartfelt stories and words of wisdom aimed at motivating graduates during these unprecedented times. The speeches are dedicated to all of the students and graduating classes of 2020, who will miss out on their commencement ceremonies and celebrations this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

The podcast will publish the speeches on 5/15, just prior to “National Graduation Day” on 5/17. The speeches will be produced through the iHeartPodcast Network, and will be available on iHeartRadio and all other podcast platforms, with each speech also being featured on iHeartMedia broadcast radio stations across the country.

“Because so many schools and colleges have moved to online learning to ensure the safety of their students, many graduates are missing their commencement ceremonies, traditionally such significant milestones in their lives,” said iHeartPodcast Network President Conal Byrne. "These are the speakers our graduates would have had at their real-world ceremonies if not for current circumstances, and we couldn’t be more excited to bring them together through this podcast.”
