WESTWOOD ONE President and CUMULUS MEDIA EVP, Corporate Marketing SUZANNE GRIMES said, “JERRY SPRINGER is more than just a talk show host. He’s a multi-media maven who knows how to parlay his expertise with people and politics into content that is eagerly devoured by fans and consumers. His entry into the podcast world is our good fortune and we are excited to bring this smart, funny, engaging podcast to our listeners.”
SPRINGER added, “I have admired WESTWOOD ONE’s success in the broadcasting industry for years. So to have them now as a partner with my podcast is not only exciting but also a great business opportunity. With their involvement, I hope we can make people laugh, encourage them to think about some important American issues, and introduce them to some of the best up-and-coming roots music writers and performers in the country.”
