At the IAB Podcast Upfronts Thursday Westwood One announced the launch of The Empow(h)er Podcast Network and will kick it off with nine podcast series. One podcast already running is called “Run Like a Girl” which shines a nonpartisan light on women running for office.
Another podcast in the line-up is called “On Her Turf,” from NBC Sports Group. The show is based on the Instagram account with the same name and celebrates female athletes. That series kicks off September 19.
“It’s undeniable that women are a cultural force with momentum like never before, which is why the time is now to launch The Empow(h)er Podcast Network,” said Suzanne Grimes, Executive Vice President, Marketing for Cumulus Media and President of Westwood One. “Women are listening to more podcasts than ever, and brands recognize this, as many have already come on board to support women and this new network.”
