iHeartMedia and OZY Media have signed a multi-year deal to co-produce and promote a slate of iHeartRadio Original Podcasts, with three shows set to be released in 2020 and distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network.
“OZY’s global suite of diverse storytellers and story-finders focuses on what’s new and
what’s next. These podcasts reflect the desire of younger audiences to broaden their minds and think bigger,” said Carlos Watson, co-founder and CEO of OZY Media. “We are thrilled to be collaborating with the massively talented team at iHeartMedia to co-produce powerful and diverse podcasts for listeners.”
The first co-produced podcast in the slate will be Around the World, a travel and culture podcast featuring stories of change-makers and renegades from around the world who are doing the unexpected in the face of adversity.
