Ingraham Expands Media Reach into Original Podcasting
With a January debut, one of the most popular radio hosts in the nation is set to extend her work on a new platform
For more than 17 years, Laura Ingraham has been one of America’s most popular and influential radio talk show hosts. And she’s now decided to transition from radio to an exciting new original podcast.
“The Laura Ingraham Show” will debut this January on PodcastOne.
The female trailblazer in radio has covered nine presidential and midterm elections, and interviewed everyone from U.S. presidents to foreign leaders to Grammy Award winners. And with her unique combination of political, legal and comedic insights, Ingraham — who is also a single mother of three children — developed a devoted following of fans from coast-to-coast.
“I’ve had a ball over the past 17 1/2 years — my radio audience helped get me through breast cancer and the death of my dad, and tuned in to be part of the conversation during good times and bad for America,” she told LifeZette on Wednesday morning.
“Now they’ll find me in a new platform, and can listen on their own schedule.”
Said PodcastOne Chairman & CEO, Norm Pattiz, in a statement, “Due to her HUGE success on the Fox News channel, daily podcasts are a much better fit for Laura’s hectic schedule and provides her listeners in all markets access at any time to the new Laura Ingraham Show podcast. She’s at the top of her game and her new original podcasts will fit perfectly on PodcastOne.”
Ingraham is also a New York Times-bestselling author; her most recent release is the paperback, just out last month, “Busting the Barricades: What I Saw at the Populist Revolution.”
She expressed her deep gratitude to all who have made her radio show possible since 2001.
“Without phenomenal producers, a committed sales team, great station managers and program directors — and of course my loyal advertisers — this show wouldn’t have been possible.”
She added, “Now it’s time for a new adventure.”
“Due to her HUGE success on the Fox News channel, daily podcasts are a much better fit for Laura’s hectic schedule and provides her listeners in all markets access at any time to the new Laura Ingraham Show podcast. She’s at the top of her game and her new original podcasts will fit perfectly on PodcastOne.”
