Michael Rapaport Inks Distribution Deal With iHeartPodcast Network.
Actor and comedian Michael Rapaport has brought his I Am Rapaport: Stereo Podcast to the iHeartPodcast Network. Since launching in 2014, the twice-a-week podcast has amassed more than 45 million downloads and released 934 episodes to date -- Rapaport has never missed a week.
“The union of I Am Rapaport and iHeartMedia is a merging of titans, and I could not be more excited to reach millions of new listeners and take the podcast world by storm together,” said Rapaport in the announcement.
The show, which releases new episodes every Tuesday and Friday, features Rapaport offering his points of view on life, sports, music, film and everything in between. Rapaport has also performed his show live at the Just For Laughs Festival in Montreal and Toronto and sold out a 30-city live tour around the U.S. and Canada.
“Michael has such a unique and authentic voice that has helped him build a huge loyal audience,” said Will Pearson, COO of the iHeartPodcast Network. “We are thrilled to add ‘I Am Rapaport' to the iHeart lineup and help him reach an even larger audience across our expansive network of listeners.”
