“The Leisuremen,” “The Ben Shapiro Show,” “The Andrew Klavan Show” and “Entrepreneurs En Vogue” Bring New Podcast Content to Listeners Nationwide

NEW YORK, NY – February 23, 2017 – Westwood One is rapidly growing and developing its podcast content vertical and just announced new podcast partnerships with NBC Sports Radio’s The Leisuremen, personalities Paul Pabst and Andrew Perloff; political website The Daily Wire, featuring two podcasts from Ben Shapiro and Andrew Klavan; and Entrepreneurs En Vogue, featuring Miss New York US, Iman Oubou. Westwood One provides exclusive ad sales representation for The Leisuremen, The Daily Wire and Entrepreneurs En Vogue. Advertisers will have access to endorsements, live reads, pre-roll, mid-roll, and post-roll advertisements as well as multi-platform opportunities across Westwood One’s robust content offering; broadcast, digital and social.

  • The Leisuremen is co-hosted by two long time sports personalities, popular “Danettes” Paul Pabst and Andrew Perloff, who bring their own entertaining brand of humor, fun, and passion. The show will touch on a wide range of topics that go wildly beyond sports – from food, drinks, cars, travel, and money to how to properly wear plaid pants.
  • The Ben Shapiro Show is the number one conservative podcast on iTunes, and ranked in the top five for News & Politics. Featuring a full video component on Facebook Live, YouTube, and The Daily Wire, Shapiro showcases all the news you need to know in the most fast-moving daily program in the country. Shapiro lets you hear from the most powerful political guests in America, brutally breaks down the culture, and never gives an inch.
  • The Andrew Klavan Show: Andrew laughs his way through Armageddon with political satire, cultural commentary, interviews, and relentless mockery of racial pieties, sexual perversities and feminist absurdities. If that’s not enough, all content is guaranteed zero percent morally acceptable.
  • Entrepreneurs En Vogue is a weekly podcast hosted by Miss New York US, Iman Oubou, who highlights notable millennial women innovators from around the world. Iman speaks to women from all industries, discussing their entrepreneurial journey, their successes, their failures, and their views on pop culture.
