Roger Lynch, the former head of online TV provider Sling, is the new man at the helm, replacing the firm's founder Tim Westergren.
The news appeared to go down well with the market.
Pandora has been missing a permanent boss since Westergren stepped down in June, under pressure to resign after a group controlled by Liberty Media Corp (NYSE:FWONA) bought a stake for US$480mln, giving it 19% of Pandora’s shares and three board seats.

Last but not least, shares in materials firm Arconic Inc (NYSE:ARNC) fell 2.24% after hours as the metals manufacturer posted gains in day trading on Monday for the first time since August 7, but then slipped after the bell.
