BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 27, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Launchpad Digital Media announced today the debut of PodcastOne.com, a single online destination to discover, download and enjoy the most popular podcasts.
PodcastOne.com provides a customizable environment where users can access their favorite podcasts for free while discovering new favorites based on their activity. One of the biggest podcasting ventures to date, PodcastOne.com is already home to more than 200 major podcasts including those from some of the biggest names in news and entertainment, such as, Adam Carolla, CBS News, Dr. Drew, Tom Green, Dennis Miller, Ron Paul, Laura Ingraham, Penn Jillette, Maria Menounos and more.
Behind PodcastOne.com is Westwood One founder Norm Pattiz, "What others have done with music, we are doing with the spoken word," commented Pattiz, chairman of Launchpad Digital Media and Courtside Entertainment Group. "Podcast One is only the best quality podcasts from comedy and entertainment to news and politics, on a platform that grows with users for a better experience each time they use it."
Kit Gray, president, Launchpad Digital Media added, "We believe people have the right to high quality entertainment for free, on their time. Because their time isn't free. It's valuable. Podcast One helps people spend less of it looking for great media and more time finding and enjoying it – whenever they want, wherever they want."
Users go to PodcastOne.com, pick their favorite podcasts and add them to their listen list. Podcast One suggests new shows based on what they already enjoy. The list is continuously updated with the freshest episodes and users can listen online or download and take their favorite shows with them. Podcast One is the easiest way to discover, download and subscribe to great podcasts for free. The website is constantly evolving with new features and functionality being added as more users experience the product.
Pattiz continued, "From the time I started Westwood One, when it came to the talk format listeners were pretty much confined to what happened to be on in their area whenever they had a chance to listen. With Podcast One all that has changed. You decide what you want to hear when you want to hear it, and discover other great shows you would have never been exposed to otherwise."
Nox Solutions designed and developed the PodcastOne.com website. "We are thrilled to work on this project with Norm Pattiz, who is a true visionary," said Payam Zarabi, CEO of Nox Solutions. "This beta version of the experience is meant to simply showcase the proof of concept. We have many great features in the works which we will be unveiling in the weeks and months ahead."
