“The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special” Debuts May 6th as a Stand-Alone Show Available on “The Ben Shapiro Show” Podcast Feed
New York, NY, May 1, 2018 – Ben Shapiro’s incredible momentum continues as The Daily Wire and Westwood One, the largest audio network in the U.S., announce the launch of a second Ben Shapiro podcast. The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special is a brand new long-form interview series airing every Sunday on the same feed as BI podcast. The first episode will be available via audio and video on May 6th.
Westwood One Podcast Network is the exclusive sales partner for all of Ben Shapiro’s podcasts and has SOLD OUT the first six episodes of The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special — with a wait-list for future episodes.
The idea behind the Sunday series is to provide more in-depth interviews, while not disrupting the fast-paced daily news format of the weekday show.
“This show is going to be a long-form discussion about ideas with the nation’s best thinkers and biggest names. It’s all about enlightening and fascinating dialogue,” said Ben Shapiro. “You can expect to know more when you’re done than you did when you hit play, and I’m supremely excited to be working with Westwood One to bring these conversations to listeners. Even better, current Ben Shapiro Show subscribers don’t even need to hit a separate button to listen – these episodes will show up in their feed.”
“The excitement around the launch of The Ben Shapiro Show Sunday Special podcast is a testament to the demand for Ben’s powerful and enlightening voice and his ability to align brands with passionate audiences through audio,” said Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing, Cumulus Media and President, Westwood One. “This is another step in our partnership to expand the Ben Shapiro brand, on the heels of the successful launch of the Ben Shapiro Show on broadcast radio, now airing on 36 stations including Cumulus Media stations in the top five markets, to reach over 58% of America.”
Ben’s flagship podcast, The Ben Shapiro Show, is the most listened to conservative podcast in the country, with 15 million downloads each month. Ben is also editor-in-chief of DailyWire.com. He is a leading conservative speaker on college campuses, consistently defending free speech and open debate. Shapiro is the author of seven books, including The New York Times bestseller, “Bullies: How the Left’s Culture of Fear and Intimidation Silences America” (2012). Shapiro is also a nationally-syndicated columnist since age 17, and a graduate of UCLA and Harvard Law School.
Westwood One Podcast Network has quickly become the destination for talent and advertisers ready for the next level. It is the only platform that provides podcasters and content creators with a full suite of promotion, syndication, and monetization capabilities from America’s largest audio network that reaches more than a quarter of a billion people each week.
