New Services will be Available for the 2020 Upfront Season
“Branded podcasts are a rapidly emerging segment of podcast revenue, having grown more than 6X to $67 million from 2018-19, and are forecast to increase to $100 million by 2021,” said Steve Jones, President and COO of Skyview Networks. “Working with Amplifi Media, we’ll be better positioned to meet the developing needs of consumer brands that are seeking a voice strategy.”
“What we know for sure in our work with radio, podcast, and smart speakers is that one-size-fits-all solutions rarely work,” said Steve Goldstein, CEO of Amplifi Media. “We are excited to be teamed with Skyview Networks to innovate, develop and maximize audio content solutions for each platform.”
Under the new arrangement, CMOs seeking to differentiate their brands with custom audio content will have access to Skyview’s network of 5,000 radio stations to create awareness of their branded podcast and/or smart speaker initiatives. Creating awareness is a critical benefit of working with Skyview Networks and Amplifi Media.
