Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) and PodcastOne are embarking on a team effort to create PodcastOne Australia, a new podcast service that will be available in Australia, New Zealand and occasionally in the U.S. SCA will operate as the exclusive partner for Australia and New Zealand, with PodcastOne handling distribution of select SCA podcasts in the U.S.

Expected to be launched in early 2017 through a mobile app and website, SCA and PodcastOne will jointly develop content for both the U.S. and Australia.

SCA has created a stand-alone PodcastOne Australia team, led by Grant Tothill in the position of SCA head of podcasting, with the goal of nurturing new talent, commissioning new content, adapting existing content, developing existing talent, handling the technical production and monetizing the podcasts.
