This innovative announcement comes from Podcast One: The Associated Press will collaborate with PodcastOne and deliver real-time news reports in on-demand podcasts. Insertion technology will enable PodcastOne to make 60-second news features available to each listener at the exact time the podcast is downloaded.
PodcastOne Chairman and CEO Norm Pattiz says, "This has never been done before because there has never been a podcast platform with the technology, excellent content, and sheer number of shows with enough audience to cover all time periods, every day of every week. AP recognizes the opportunity and will be great to work with. This cutting-edge movement is another step in the digital evolution of spoken word audio."
