Cadence13 and Iconic Actress Ellen Pompeo Partner on Podcast


Leading premium podcast studio, Cadence13, an Audacy company, today announced that it has partnered with award-winning actress Ellen Pompeo—the star of ABC’s long-running hit series Grey’s Anatomy—for her first-ever podcast, Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo.

The announcement was first made today at the 2021 IAB Podcast Upfront.

Beloved to millions of fans around the world for her role as Meredith Grey on ABC’s award-winning, critically acclaimed drama Grey’s Anatomy, Pompeo is also an outspoken activist for issues including equal pay for women in Hollywood and beyond, social justice, voting rights, women’s rights, and more.

On Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo, which will launch this fall, Pompeo will sit down for in-depth, candid conversations with a wide range of guests—celebrity and otherwise—who inspire her, extraordinary people who do extraordinary things, to find out what makes them great. Pompeo will use the weekly show to shine a light on people and highlight issues important to her and the world at large.

“I am thrilled to be partnering with Cadence13. This is an exciting way for me to further connect with my fans. Hopefully this podcast will continue to inspire, provoke thought, and impart some wisdom,” said Ellen Pompeo.

“Ellen is a Hollywood trailblazer who has also never been afraid to use her powerful voice in positive and impactful ways,” said Chris Corcoran, Chief Content Officer, Cadence13. “Cadence13 is proud to welcome her to the family, and we can’t wait to bring her voice to the world this fall.”

Pompeo is repped by CAA, John Carrabino Management, and Hansen Jacobson.

Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo will be executive produced by Pompeo, Laura Holstein, Chris Corcoran of Cadence13, and Rabbit Grin Productions.

Laura Holstein is Ellen Pompeo’s producing partner at Calamity Jane Entertainment. Prior to working with Pompeo, she worked with John Wells and ran his feature film department.

Rabbit Grin Productions is the premiere podcast production company producing shows such as Anna Faris is Unqualified, Mayim Bialik’s Breakdown, Hypochondriactor with Sean Hayes, Learning Lots with Brie Larson & Jessie Ennis and Work in Progress with Sophia Bush. Founded by Rob Holysz (Armchair Expert) and Jeph Porter, their shows have gotten millions of downloads across all major podcast platforms.
