SiriusXM's Stitcher signs Carlos King to launch original podcast series Reality with the King on More Sauce
Stitcher, the Triton-ranked #1 podcast company and SiriusXM subsidiary, announced today a new show with one of television’s most sought-after executive producers, Carlos King (The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Love and Marriage: Huntsville). Beginning April 6 on Stitcher’s More Sauce network, the Reality with The King podcast goes behind the scenes of some of the most iconic moments from the biggest reality shows on TV.
Every Wednesday and Friday, Reality with the King rehashes shocking betrayals, hilarious interactions and dramatic scenes from The Real Housewives franchise, Love & Marriage: Huntsville, The Bachelor, and much more. Carlos – the founder of Kingdom Reign Entertainment, whom fans have affectionately dubbed “The King of Reality TV” – will often be joined by some of reality TV’s most notable stars to dish on the drama fans see play out on screen, as well as what happens when the cameras aren’t rolling.
“For years I’ve been asked to start a podcast, but it wasn’t until I met Jazmine at More Sauce that I knew I’d found the right fit,” said Carlos King. “With this show, I’m excited to share my expertise on all things reality television – from my top 10 list of the greatest housewives of all time, to conversations with the people you love, and love to hate.”
“I’ve been a fan of Carlos’ work for years now,” says Jazmine Henley-Brown, executive producer of More Sauce. “So much of the More Sauce audience watches reality TV, and because Carlos is such a respected figure in that world, it was a no-brainer to approach him with a show idea. I can’t wait for our listeners to hear what he has in store.”
Reality with the King is the latest show to launch from Stitcher’s More Sauce label, home to popular shows New Rory & MAL and Lovers and Friends with Shan Boodram. Listeners can subscribe now on the Stitcher app, SiriusXM’s mobile app, Pandora, and all major podcast listening platforms.
Stitcher is providing production support for Reality with the King, and SXM Media, the combined advertising revenue organization of Sirius XM Holdings Inc., has exclusive global ad sales rights for the show.
Reality with the King is executive produced by Carlos King and Jazmine Henley-Brown (New Rory & MAL, Lovers & Friends with Shan Boodram), with additional production support from Stitcher’s Se’era Spragley Ricks, and sound engineering from Marcus Hahm.
