An expanded partnership between Fox News Media and SiriusXM will put all of the news network’s original podcasts on all service tiers of Pandora, a wholly owned subsidiary of the satcaster. In addition, the “Fox News Rundown” daily news digest now airs weekday mornings on SiriusXM’s Patriot channel.
The audio network’s signature news and analysis podcast, “The Fox News Rundown,” features Fox News Radio anchors and reporters Jacqui Heinrich, Dave Anthony, Lisa Brady, Jessica Rosenthal and Chris Foster breaking down top headlines, along with interviews with newsmakers and insights from reporters stationed around the globe.
The audio network’s podcast portfolio spans 20 original shows, including the “Fox News Radio Newscast,” the “Fox Business Hourly Report” and “I’ll Tell You What.”
The agreement also makes Fox News Radio’s three nationally syndicated talk shows, “The Brian Kilmeade Show,” “Fox Across America with Jimmy Failla” and “The Guy Benson Show” available to Pandora listeners. Pandora was already carrying the audio of Fox News Channel’s shows, such as “The Five,” “Special Report with Bret Baier,” “The Story with Martha MacCallum,” “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” “Hannity,” “The Ingraham Angle” and “Fox News @ Night with Shannon Bream.”
Pandora joins iHeartRadio, Spotify, TuneIn, Player FM, Podcast Republic, Apple podcasts and others in distributing Fox News podcasts.
“We are thrilled to expand our longstanding partnership, ensuring SiriusXM and Pandora’s combined over 100 million listeners continued access to our cutting edge news coverage, as well as our best in class lifestyle and opinion programming,” John Sylvester, VP of Fox News Audio, said in the announcement.
Fox News Radio was the No. 18 podcast publisher in May, according to Podtrac, with nearly 2.3 million uniques and 13million downloads. On broadcast radio Fox News says it reaches 36 million listeners across 1,500 affiliated radio stations in the U.S.
