More than a dozen new co-produced podcasts are part of a new alliance between the business news giant Bloomberg and iHeartMedia. The two companies announced they are teaming up in an exclusive multiyear partnership to co-produce and distribute new original podcasts.
Under the deal, iHeart will also distribute Bloomberg’s existing slate of over 20 podcasts through the iHeartPodcast Network.
The first four new co-produced iHeartRadio Original podcasts will take a broad view on business topics, covering subject areas like financial crime or the cost of climate change or the future of an industry.
Bloomberg is not a podcast newcomer. It already produces a lineup of business-related podcasts including the incredibly popular Masters in Business, Odd Lots, Foundering, and The Pay Check, among others.
The new podcasts will begin rolling out later this year.
