HITS Daily Double


Warner Music Group’s Interval Presents and iHeartMedia are partnering on podcasts, ranging from weekly shows to limited-run series.

Interval Presents will distribute its podcasts through the iHeartPodcast Network to all podcast consumption platforms. It will use iHeartMedia’s Omny/Triton platform to provide hosting, distribution and programmatic ad sales, as well as audience and data insight.

“Joining forces with an iconic music company like Warner Music Group, known for its dedication to advancing the voices and careers of artists, is a seamless fit for iHeartMedia,” said Conal Byrne, CEO of iHeartMedia Digital Audio Group. “Our team is thrilled to be co-producing a slate of shows to elevate inspiring, diverse voices and important conversations in this vein.”

Interval Presents was created in April. Its first slate of podcasts encompasses Rap Radar and Holding Court With Eboni K. Williams, which was launched last month. Upcoming shows include The Last Resort, hosted by indigenous artist and activist Xiuhtezcatl.

Said Allan Coye, GM of Interval Presents and SVP of digital strategy & business development at Warner Music Group, “This collaboration allows us to expand the reach of our existing shows and accelerate our ability to launch new podcasts featuring stories and individuals in need of amplification.”
