NEW YORK, NY – March 10, 2016 – Westwood One has announced a new partnership with podcaster Jason Stapleton, host of the wildly-popular and top-rated podcast, The Jason Stapleton Program. Stapleton, whose video podcasts are among the highest-rated on iTunes, will join Westwood One’s Podcast & On-Demand platform via audioBoom. Westwood One will provide exclusive ad sales representation for the show, boost efforts to increase listenership, and drive massive awareness beyond the thousands of daily downloads. Advertisers will have access to endorsements, live reads, pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll advertisements.
Stapleton is a former marine, entrepreneur and radio show host. The Jason Stapleton Program, a political and economic show, is one of the largest liberty-minded podcasts in the world, with hundreds of thousands of listeners from across the globe. Over the last ten years, Stapleton has inspired millions of people to achieve a level of success they never thought possible. In his podcasts he simplifies the issues (governments, politics, economy, domestic and foreign policy, war, markets, morals, and more) to provide clarity, a bit of sanity, and a welcome sense of calm.
"I couldn't be more excited to announce our new partnership with Westwood One,” said Stapleton. “Our goal with this show has always been to educate, to inform, and to entertain, and now we have an opportunity to take the show to an entirely new level."
Kelli Hurley, Westwood One’s VP, National Partnerships & Digital Activation/Midwest, said “Joining forces with The Jason Stapleton Program catapults Westwood One into the podcast game in a big way. We are thrilled to bring Jason’s talent, expertise, and energy into our expanding portfolio of podcast and on-demand content and we look forward to the new opportunities this will bring to advertisers.”
