NBA And NFL Pros Help Pod Digital Media Expand Its Multicultural Podcast Ad Network.


Pod Digital Media, the multicultural podcast rep firm, announced today it has added five new shows to its growing sales portfolio. The podcasts include the on-demand version of the syndicated radio show “Ebro in the Morning” as well as several shows targeting sports fans, including a new series hosted by former NBA player Kenyon Martin. Combined, Pod Digital Media says the podcasts have a combined audience reach of more than 600,000 weekly listeners.


“We’re excited to welcome new podcast shows to the Pod Digital Media this month,” said Gary Coichy, CEO and head of partnerships at Pod Digital Media. “COVID-19 created a challenging environment for advertisers to reach sports audiences and the addition of new top sports programs allows us to introduce their listeners to leading advertisers, build brand affinity and drive key metrics.”
