iHeartMedia has found another way to work with podcasters. The company’s Milwaukee cluster is joining forces with The Wisconsin Podcast Festival to promote one listener’s podcast on the air with the iHeart Your Podcast contest. The contest will give someone the opportunity to have their podcast advertised on all six of iHeartMedia Milwaukee’s stations.
The Wisconsin Podcast Festival is Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Italian Community Center in Milwaukee. The festival will feature live podcasts and breakout sessions. There are now four podcast networks in the city of Milwaukee. Attendees will get to meet podcasters, learn about starting or growing their own show, and how to monetize them. There will also be 25 vendors at the festival.
Listeners and fans can enter the iHeart contest by completing an entry form and submitting a one- to five-minute audio file of their podcast to fm106.com, v100.com, 957bigfm.com, thegamemke.com, newstalk1130.com, thebig920.com, or at the festival itself. The final day to submit a podcast online is Sunday, September 8 at 11:59 p.m. CT. The winner will be notified on September 16.
