After four years with PodcastOne, Jericho revealed that he and the Jericho Network he launched in June 2016 would be moving to another platform.
“This is the last TIJ of 2017 and it’s also the last Talk is Jericho here on PodcastOne. I’ve got a big announcement to share with you. Talk is Jericho has a new podcast home for 2018. My show is moving to Westwood One, the huge, the famous Westwood One!,” Jericho said.
Talk Is Jericho originally debuted with PodcastOne on December of 2013 with “Stone Cold” Steve Austin being Jericho’s first guest. Jericho now boasts a library of over 400 episodes.
Moving forward, Jericho has explained that nothing is changing with the format. What is changing though, is the platform. Westwood One will be the home of Jericho in 2018.
“Nothing is really changing. We’re still doing two episodes per week, every Wednesday and Friday, just like we’ve always been doing… The good news is [that] The Jericho Network is coming with me. So Westwood One, here we come! I really feel that Talk Is Jericho is going to go to a whole new level with Westwood One.”
For those unfamiliar with Westwood One, it is said to be a much bigger platform in terms of opportunities and the publishers that work under them. Companies like the Olympics and major sports teams have podcasts there. For Jericho, this is a huge step up for not only himself, but the entire Jericho Network which leaves with him.
Jericho added that moving forward on Westwood One, the show will be available on Google Play, Stitcher, Tune In and Podbean. You can also watch on the web via Omny.fm.
