Since 1999, Jon Rubin has been developing and producing pop culture-based television programming for Vh1/MTV, truTV, People Magazine’s digital network and most recently NBC, where he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing Andy Meyer while creating the 2-hour documentary Behind Closed Doors: The Breakfast Club, which premiered on REELZ in early 2020. A self-professed music nut and film buff since the late ‘70s, Rubin is excited to continue their working relationship with The Meyer Chronicles podcast series. Over the years Rubin has interviewed iconic celebrities such as Bono, Chris Rock, Amy Schumer, Gene Simmons, Rachael Ray and Dr. Ruth Westheimer, and still texts with Anthony Michael Hall’s mom. When he’s not playing guitar in the New York-based band Skyfactor, or hunting down vintage KISS merchandise on eBay, he can usually be found binging on episodes of ‘Cobra Kai’, while trying to convince either of his teenage children to watch Weird Science with him for the 12th time.
