APM’s podcast arm and Audacy’s Cadence13 business announced a multiyear “strategic partnership.” APM is the programming and distribution division of Minnesota Public Radio. Audacy is the company formerly known as Entercom.
“Cadence13 will serve as the exclusive podcast sales representative for APM,” they said in a release. “Additionally, the organizations will develop future on-demand programming initiatives, co-productions and collaborative new revenue opportunities.”
The announcement was made by Lily Kim, general manager of APM’s podcast division, and Chris Corcoran, chief content officer for Cadence13. Kim said the organizations “share a complementary vision for premium audio storytelling.”
The companies highlighted APM’s podcast programming and the “reach and scale” of Cadence13’s audio and ad networks, with the goal of offering better and more targeted opportunities to their advertisers.
APM says its podcasts reach 3 million listeners and 17 million monthly downloads. Titles include “Marketplace,” “In the Dark,” “Don’t Ask Tig” and several popular “kids and family” podcasts. Cadence13 shows include “We Can Do Hard Things with Glennon Doyle,” “The Goop Podcast,” and “4D with Demi Lovato.”
Audacy will support the partnership via marketing and development on its radio and digital platforms.
