iHeartMedia and Top On-Air Personality Elvis Duran Launch Elvis Duran Podcast Network
iHeartMedia, the No. 1 podcast publisher globally according to Podtrac, and top nationally-syndicated radio personality Elvis Duran, announced today a partnership to launch the Elvis Duran Podcast Network which will be distributed by iHeartPodcasts.
The agreement includes a slate of original entertainment podcasts that will be co-produced by Duran and iHeartPodcasts including a new, original podcast, “Thinking Out Loud with Elvis Duran.” Listeners can hear the first episode now, which features a conversation with singer-songwriter Kesha. Additionally, the network will be home to the replay podcast of “Elvis Duran and the Morning Show,” the most-listened-to Top 40 radio morning show in the country. The network also includes podcasts featuring popular segments and extended show content from the Premiere Networks-syndicated program, which reaches more than five million monthly listeners on 70 stations nationwide, as well as upcoming new podcasts from cast members including Medha Gandhi and others.
“We’re excited to launch this network and connect with even more listeners and fans,” shared Duran. “I’m confident the audience will love the variety of personalities, including Tommy DiDario and Medha Gandhi, and the entertaining programs that we’ll be presenting. I’m also looking forward to sitting down with a wide range of people on my new podcast and taking a deep dive in whichever direction they choose - something I’m not always able to do on my radio show. It’s going to be a fun adventure together!”
“Elvis has long been a companion for millions of people across the country every morning as they prepare to start their day - it’s truly an art the way he engages and energizes these listeners in a way that very few can,” said Will Pearson, President iHeartPodcasts. “We couldn’t be more excited to be introducing a whole network of shows curated by Elvis himself that are guaranteed to entertain people everywhere throughout the day.”
The Elvis Duran Podcast Network will feature the following podcasts, which are available on the iHeartRadio app and everywhere podcasts are heard:
