Matt Atchity on Landing a Sirius XM Rotten Tomatoes Show

A funny thing happened to Rotten Tomatoes editor-in-chief Matt Atchity as he was finalizing plans for a website podcast. Satellite radio came a calling.

“Just as we were about to start that production, Sirius XM came to us and asked us if we’d be interested in having a show on one of their channels,” Atchity explained during an additional portion of a recent interview conducted by FishbowlLA for Mediabistro’s “So What Do You Do?…” feature. “We’ve been doing the Thursday show for about a month now and we’re having a great time.”

Another additional topic discussed was the impact of synergies under new owner Warner Bros. “Tomatometer scores are on the Flixster Movies app and on Flixster.com, and the Flixster audience scores,” Atchity notes. “’Want to See It’ scores show up on Rotten Tomatoes now, and RT content such as articles and trailers are fed out to the Movies app. The Flixster development team also created an API that’s helped us syndicate and expand the reach of the Tomatometer. We’re currently integrated quite a few partners, including iTunes, YouTube, Rovi and Apple TV.”
