Tenderfoot TV
President and Co-Founder

California native Donald Albright is an entrepreneur, producer and co-founder of Atlanta-based content creation company, Tenderfoot TV.

In 2016, Albright joined friend and music video director Payne Lindsey to launch Tenderfoot TV, a content creation company that works with fellow creators to bring stories to life through an array of entertainment media -- including podcasts, live shows, television, film, and other digital platforms.

Since its launch, Tenderfoot TV has released multiple successful podcast franchises including “Up and Vanished,” “Monster,” “Radio Rental,” and “To Live and Die in LA,” amassing over 600 million downloads in total in less than four years.  Through Tenderfoot TV, Albright has garnered partnerships with media companies including iHeartRadio, NBCUniversal, HBO, Netflix, Cadence13, and Issa Rae’s label Raedio, continuously collaborating on new podcasts. He also brought on award-winning Rolling Stone journalist and bestselling author Neil Strauss to create Tenderfoot TV’s most recent No. 1 podcast, “To Live and Die in LA,” which amassed over 50 million downloads.  

Dubbed the “Podcast Kingmaker” by Atlanta Magazine, Albright’s success in the podcast industry has been widely acclaimed. Albright serves as Chairperson for The Podcast Academy and in 2020 he won both an Icon Award and the 2020 Audible Audio Pioneer Award. Fast Company also recognized Tenderfoot as a company that “knows how to keep listeners engaged,” and Albright plans to continue that mentality of entertainment with a purpose as he leads other forthcoming Tenderfoot projects, including podcasts and television series in development for 2021.
