Audacy has launched a podcast studio that’s intended to be the home of its sports digital audio content.
It is called 2400Sports. “The new studio launches on the heels of Audacy becoming the official audio and podcast partner of Major League Baseball,” the company said in the announcement.
“As part of that partnership, Audacy and Major League Baseball will collaborate on the production and distribution of official podcast programming for the league and its clubs.” That includes a new series coming this fall about past playoff highlights, as well as projects with the individual ballclubs.
Audacy also announced an agreement with podcast producer Jody Avirgan’s Roulette Productions to develop and create shows. Avirgan is former executive producer and host of ESPN’s “30 for 30” podcasts.
2400Sports joins Cadence13 and Pineapple Street Studio along with podcast marketplace Podcorn as elements of the company’s podcast stable.
