Tim Westergren speaking at Pandora's event in Chicago

Pandora on Monday hosted around 200 ad buyers for a party to celebrate the launch of its new Chicago sales office.

The "just launched local sales effort" by Pandora in the Windy City includes a staff of 25 and is headed by Gabe Tartaglia, previously GSM for CBS Radio's WUSN and WCFS in Chicago. Pandora's Director of Mobile and Emerging Media, Kim Luegers, previously with DraftFCB, OMD, and Mediaedge, is also based in the Chicago office, located in the Tribune Tower.

The launch party took place at theWit Hotel's ROOF and featured an appearance by Pandora founder Tim Westergren. "We have a million monthly listeners just in Chicago," Westergren told the crowd, "which makes us one of the biggest radio stations in this city. And we're growing like a weed. We hope to soon be the largest."

He explained that Pandora is undergoing a transition to "not just be big on a national level, but getting to a level where we're big locally… [we have to] think about ourselves like a local radio station. We are like a lot of big local radio stations all put together, all across the country... We're becoming radio. Radio writ large."

Westergren praised traditional radio for still being "the pipeline to music for Americans." But "there will come a time when people think about 'radio,' and it will really be 'personalized radio'

"We're going to revolutionize radio... reinvent it."
