DREW, TOM GREEN, DENNIS MILLER, RON PAUL, LAURA INGRAHAM, PENN JILLETTE, MARIA MENONUNOS and more.
Behind PODCASTONE.COM is WESTWOOD ONE founder NORM PATTIZ. "What others have done with music, we are doing with the spoken word -- help listeners discover new programming based on their listening habits," commented PATTIZ. "This is a powerful promotional vehicle for any program looking to grow audience in a big way. In addition, by delivering talk, comedy, news, sports and entertainment radio as on-demand podcasts accessible via the internet, PODCAST ONE expands the reach of national radio programs to every listener in the country -- eliminating void and uncleared markets, while helping radio grow its audience and receive fair value for it."
"PODCAST ONE helps people spend less time searching for great content and more time discovering and enjoying it," added LAUNCHPAD DIGITAL MEDIA Pres. KIT GRAY. "The site's discovery feature and easy-to-use social network interface allow PODCAST ONE to provide programs with unprecedented exposure to a previously untapped audience."
PATTIZ continued, "From the time I started WESTWOOD ONE, radio has always been about knowing what listeners want and giving it to them. With today’s technology the listener wants control. PODCAST ONE gives them the power they desire to discover great content on their terms, while providing programs with an exciting new avenue to target and grow audience."
