The drummer and producer, who is famous for his knowledge of music, will help the company nurture new talent and debut new initiatives, while hosting a weekly three-hour show online promoting rare cuts and new acts.

"Questlove is one of the most talented and influential artists of our time," Pandora founder/CEO Tim Westergren said in a statement. "His near encyclopedic knowledge of the theory and history of music and his abiding passion for supporting artists of all kinds is a perfect match for our mission."

"I'm very excited to join Pandora in their mission to create a healthy and vibrant industry for artists and fans alike," Questlove added.

His new Pandora show, Questlove Supreme, will premiere on 7 September (16) and feature guests Maya Rudolph and Kimbra.
