August 30, 2016 at 11:16 AM (PT)
FORBES is launching a podcast network with distribution through PODCASTONE. The "FORBES ON PODCASTONE" network will initially feature four existing shows, including "THE LIMIT DOES NOT EXIST," hosted by CHRISTINA WALLACE and CATE SCOTT CAMPBELL and focusing on STEM education; "MENTORING MOMENTS" with DENISE RESTAURI; "HIDING IN THE BATHROOM" with MORRA AARONS-MELE, looking at entrepreneurs; and "THE PREMISE," with FORBES writers and editors exploring tech issues. Further podcasts on the network are likely to cover video gaming, sports, tech, hip-hop, and other topics. The network will launch in the first week of OCTOBER, although all four podcasts have been posting since earlier this year, three for the "WOMEN@FORBES" digital network and "THE PREMISE" separately.
“We’ve had a lot of ‘oh, wow’ moments at PODCASTONE,” said PODCASTONE Founder and Executive Chairman NORM PATTIZ. “None bigger than this. An exclusive podcast partnership with FORBES is a very big deal for our network. The FORBES brand brings with it the history and credibility in not only business, finance and tech, but also sports, women’s issues, entertainment, plus everything and anything that the FORBES and PODCASTONE teams will develop together.”
“We built a business model of distributed authorship when we launched our contributor platform on FORBES.COM six years ago - a platform that today has 2,000 contributors publishing their expertise on our site. In staying consistent with our business model, we entered the audio space this April with the launch of limited-run FORBES podcasts as part of our women’s digital network WOMEN@FORBES,” said FORBES MEDIA Chief Product Officer LEWIS D'VORKIN. “Now we need to be a part of the world of distributed content – and there’s no better partner than the leading podcast network PODCASTONE to propel our growth in the audio space and further drive our audience development efforts.”
