Realm inks deal with Adelicious for exclusive US ad sales representation
Realm announced today a partnership with Adelicious, the UK’s leading independent podcast hosting and monetization network.
In this comprehensive deal, Realm assumes the role of exclusive advertising representative for a slate of Adelicious shows in the US market. This strategic collaboration encompasses a diverse array of content, featuring select Noiser hits such as Real Dictators, Real Survival Stories, and Short History Of…, alongside captivating titles like Intelligence Squared and Super Great Kids’ Stories. The combined reach of these shows exceeds 2 million monthly downloads in the US alone. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
Partnering with Adelicious marks another significant milestone for Realm in a busy year, enhancing a continually expanding roster of major collaborators. Building on the success of previous deals with media giant IGN and a rapidly-growing kids and family slate including Rebel Girls and GoKidGo, Realm’s network has more than tripled in 2023. Realm also acquired two companies – kids and family-focused Pinna and women’s lifestyle network Lipstick & Vinyl, underscoring Realm’s commitment to forging innovative and impactful partnerships in the podcasting marketplace.
