'Crime Stories with Nancy Grace' draws over 4 million downloads in June, landing program in top 1% of all podcasts


NEW YORK and LOS ANGELES, July 7, 2020 – Thanks to exclusive breaking news coverage, Crime Stories with Nancy Grace snared more than four million downloads in June – an 86% increase from June 2019 - placing it firmly in the top 1% of all podcasts for listenership. The daily podcast’s July 2 episode was its most downloaded ever, attracting over 400,000 downloads in a single day.

“Crime Stories with Nancy Grace,” executive-produced by Jackie Howard, broke exclusive news on the missing Fort Hood soldier Vanessa Guillen, revealing the discovery of human remains believed to be Guillen as well as the identity of suspects in her death and disappearance.

“I’m proud we can bring breaking news on crime victims to an even wider audience every month. Our listeners and viewers play a critical role in our mission to fight crime and speak for those who can no longer speak for themselves. So many of the cases we investigate are sent to us by ‘Crime Stories’ listeners on social media. We can’t thank them enough for joining us each and every day. Without them, our program as we know it would not be possible,” says Grace.

In an agreement with Red Seat Ventures, Crossover Media Group Sales handles advertising sales for the “Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” podcast.

“Crime Stories with Nancy Grace” is the flagship podcast of CrimeOnline, a digital platform launched by Nancy Grace and Red Seat Ventures in 2017. The website delivers nine million page views a month and reaches over 2.5 million people on social media.

“True crime content is proving to be particularly popular on the podcast platform, and Nancy is now clearly a leading brand in the genre,” said Sue Freund, Crossover Media Group Sales managing member. “The breakout success of ‘Crime Stories with Nancy Grace,’ coupled with other shows we offer that are hosted by nationally prominent women personalities, enables us to deliver a powerfully large and loyal female audience for marketers.”
