Global launches brand-new podcast - The News Agents Investigates
Following the success of the chart-topping daily podcast The News Agents, Global, the Media & Entertainment Group, today (Friday 29th September 2023) announced a new monthly podcast The News Agents Investigates, fronted by Lewis Goodall.
Launching on Sunday 1st October, The News Agents Investigates is the latest extension to The News Agents brand, following the launch of The News Agents USA this summer. The investigative podcast will provide on-the-ground newsgathering and reporting, getting to the heart of the biggest stories in news and current affairs.
Hosted by The News Agents co-presenter and Global’s Analysis and Investigations Editor, Lewis Goodall, The News Agents Investigates will release stand-alone, fully visualised podcast episodes available on Global Player, alongside exclusive social media content.
Lewis Goodall said: “I couldn’t be happier about this project and the fact that Global and The News Agents brand are investing so much in original journalism. Reporting is my bread and butter, what I love most and it’s so exciting we’ll be doing news-making stories across Britain and beyond. The News Agents is a truly multi-platform media project, and our incredible team will be bringing our journalism to audiences on the podcast, on video and across social media. The first story is going to get people talking and it’s just the beginning.”
Vicky Etchells, Head of News and Factual podcasts at Global, said: “I’m delighted that we are launching The News Agents Investigates, which will bring audiences on-the-ground reporting in a truly multi-media way. Hosted by award-winning investigative journalist, Lewis Goodall, alongside our brave undercover reporters, The News Agents Investigates is set to be an agenda-driving listen.”
Since launching last August, The News Agents has covered the biggest stories in the UK, broken news and interviewed some of the most high-profile names in politics including Labour leader Sir Keir Starmer, Chancellor Jeremy Hunt, former Scottish First Minister Nicola Sturgeon, former Prime Minister Sir Tony Blair and Oscar-winning actor Rachel Weisz.
This summer, The News Agents USA launched as a weekly podcast presented by Emily Maitlis and Jon Sopel unravelling everything listeners need to know about the world of US politics.
Alongside the audio content, full episodes of The News Agents Investigates will be available in vision, exclusively on Global Player, with clips and extra content available on its social media channels @thenewsagents on TikTok, Twitter and Instagram and @thenewsagentsofficial on Facebook and YouTube.
