AUDIOBOOM has signed an exclusive partnership with comedian, actor, and radio host RUSSELL BRAND to deliver twice-weekly comedy podcasts that are centered on his unique world-views and general humor.
The RUSSELL BRAND Podcast is a 45-minute show that will be available on AUDIOBOOM every WEDNESDAY and SUNDAY, beginning FEBRUARY 25th for a total of 24 podcast programs. AUDIOBOOM’s advertising sales partner, ADLARGE MEDIA, will identify advertising sponsorships and create customized packages for national clients.
“Me and my sleeper-cell of radio mates are happy to get back on the air with AUDIOBOOM,” BRAND stated. “Which sounds like terrorism in the earhole ... Exciting.”
BRAND’s team includes writer MATT MORGAN and poet laureate MR. GEE. He will also utilize the AUDIOBOOM app to record and publish his thoughts on the fly. AUDIOBOOM also exclusively will present "The Best of The Trews" audio from BRAND’s popular YOUTUBE channel. A 10-minute highlight package will be available on iTUNES and broadcast across AUDIOBOOM’s unique global syndication network.
The RUSSELL BRAND Podcast will be made into an hour-long show and syndicated to AUDIOBOOM broadcast partners in the U.K., the U.S. and AUSTRALIA.
“I am ecstatic that AUDIOBOOM has managed to attract one of the world’s most talented entertainers,” AUDIOBOOM CEO ROBERT PROCTOR said. “This partnership not only will bring unique content to our platform and users, but it also will make us hugely attractive to the growing number of on-demand audio listeners around the world. I do not think it is any coincidence that RUSSELL has chosen to release his latest material in an on-demand platform.”
“RUSSELL BRAND is one of those rare talents who combines comedy and entertainment with pure intelligence and raw emotion,” ADLARGE MEDIA VP/Digital Sales & Content Partnerships JAY GREEN added. “We are excited for the opportunity RUSSELL’s show brings to our brand investors.”
