Press Release · Pittsburgh, PA, USA · via Relev8 ·

Today, Liberated Syndication Inc. (“Libsyn”), the leading ‘Podcasting As A Service’ platform, announces its December 2022 Podcast Advertising Rates, including the highest and most accessible CPM categories.

“2022 was a breakout year in podcasting. Podcasts have become mainstream with explosive growth among younger and more diverse audiences who are embracing niche genres and new ways of listening,” said Dave Hanley, Chief Revenue Officer at Libsyn’s AdvertiseCast. “In parallel, advertisers are increasingly drawn to the value of the medium as a highly effective, brand safe, and brand suitable environment to market their product or service – which we expect to grow in 2023.”

The following rates, which are denoted as cost per thousand or CPM, are published monthly by Libsyn’s AdvertiseCast, the industry’s premier podcast advertising marketplace that connects advertisers with podcasters. The Company releases the figures to empower the podcaster and advertiser communities to readily monitor market pricing and provide greater insight into podcasting advertising as a monetization vehicle. The data is derived from actual sales data across AdvertiseCast’s network of over 3,000 shows, including more than 225 exclusive podcasts.
