Scottish expansion for UK's Podcast Radio


London-based Podcast Radio is now on the air in Scotland as well as London, Surrey and Manchester.

The digital radio station started broadcasting to the city of Glasgow at the weekend, adding another 600,000 people to its potential audience.

Podcast Radio allows listeners to discover, sample, choose and enjoy podcasts in a broadcast radio format including interviews with podcasters and charts of the top podcasts.

CEO Gerry Edwards says: “At a time when other radio stations in the UK are cutting back, Podcast Radio is growing. We’re delighted to welcome Scottish listeners – and we have big plans for future expansion in the UK and worldwide”.

Podcast Radio started broadcasting in February and broadcasts on DAB+ digital radio. It has already agreed content partnerships with podcast producers Radio New Zealand, Lionsgate UK/Cameo Productions, Alan Alda’s Clear+Vivid company and Evergreen Podcasts in Ohio, USA.

One of its ‘podjocks’ (a cross between a DJ and an announcer) is US radio veteran Gene Baxter, who spent 30 years on the Morning Show at KROQ in Los Angeles and now lives in London.

The station also carries regular updates from Podnews.
