PodcastOne SportsNet content is teaming with AP’s worldwide sports coverage to provide reports from national and international sporting events, beginning with Winter Olympics in PyeongChang, South Korea. The deal also includes new PodcastOne and AP content, with some premiering as soon as this week. Additionally, “Red Circle Sports with Dennis Miller,” “Riggle’s Picks,” “Real GM” and others will be added to PodcastOne SportsNet’s line-up, which includes Shaquille O’Neal, Dan Patrick, Steve Austin, Rich Eisen and others, plus team podcasts from the Los Angeles Lakers, Minnesota Vikings and more.
PodcastOne Chairman Norman Pattiz said, “This will provide AP and PodcastOne subscribers with real-time, daily news reports, commentary and original content. It will provide additional power to the explosive growth of podcasting, while taking maximum advantage of the unmatched connection to listeners that podcasts already provide. AP Sports is everywhere with on-the-ground, first-hand coverage that will now be available via podcasts as never before.”
“We are excited to work with PodcastOne to bring AP’s unrivaled worldwide sports coverage to a new audience through on-demand digital audio programming — a growing medium,” added AP director for digital and commercial markets Anthony Brito. “The expertise of our reporters and hosts, coupled with AP Sports content and PodcastOne’s vast network makes for a winning combination for sports fans everywhere.”
Content produced by AP and PodcastOne SportsNet will be distributed on AP platforms, as well as PodcastOne.com and the PodcastOne app.
