PodcastOne SportsNet and The Associated Press have teamed up to provide in-depth daily reports from national and international sporting events. This begins with the Winter Olympics in Pyeongchang, South Korea.
PodcastOne SportsNet will distribute Associated Press reports starting with the Winter Olympics (and continuing with other national and international sports). The deal will add AP reports to PodcastOne’s sports podcast lineup; AP news reports currently appear on PodcastOne non-sports offerings.
PodcastOne Chairman Norm 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,” said Anthony Brito, AP director for digital and commercial markets. “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.”
The deal also includes new PodcastOne and AP content. Additionally, Red Circle Sports with Dennis Miller, Riggle’s Picks, Real GM and others will be added to PodcastOne SportsNet’s line-up. Content produced by AP and PodcastOne SportsNet will be distributed on AP platforms, as well as PodcastOne.com and the PodcastOne app.
