Chicken soup for the soul has long been known as a purveyor of feel-good content. Now, the company is looking to bring that same warmth and positivity to its streaming offerings. To that end, they’ve tapped Phil Oppenheim, a veteran in the streaming industry, to fill the newly created role of chief content officer.

In his new role, Oppenheim will be tasked with spearheading content strategy across the company’s physical and streaming brands, including AVOD service Crackle and video rental company Redbox. He will report directly to Chicken Soup for the Soul’s president Jonathan Katz.

Oppenheim comes to Chicken Soup for the Soul with over 20 years of experience in the entertainment industry. He most recently served as SVP of Content and Operations at Jukin Media, where he oversaw a portfolio of over 50 digital media brands. Prior to that, he held senior roles at AOL and Yahoo. In his new role at Chicken Soup for the Soul, Oppenheim will be responsible for growing the company’s footprint in the streaming space and expanding its reach to new audiences.

The Importance of Quality Content
As more and more people turn to streaming services for their entertainment needs, it’s becoming increasingly important for content providers to offer quality programming that can compete with the likes of Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime Video. That’s where Oppenheim comes in. With his deep understanding of the streaming landscape and vast experience in content curation, he is uniquely positioned to help Chicken Soup for the Soul meet the demands of today’s discerning viewers.

In an age where there is an almost overwhelming amount of content available at our fingertips’ tips— much of it of questionable quality— it’s more important than ever to have someone like Oppenheim at the helm who can help sift through the noise and deliver only the best stories that will resonate with viewers. And if there’s one thing we know about Chicken Soup for the Soul, it’s that they have a knack for finding those special stories that touch our hearts and leave us feeling uplifted. We have no doubt that under Oppenheim’s leadership, Chicken Soup for the Soul will continue to be a leading provider of feel-good content that everyone can enjoy.
