  • Bustle

Listenership for podcasts is at an all time high, according to Edison research. 112 million people reported having listened to a podcast. Whether it's at home, on their commute, as they work, or at the gym, podcast listeners are consuming an average of 5 episodes per week. As people start to experience "screen fatigue" at work and at home, listening to news stories has become a welcome alternative to reading.

"We're excited to offer SpokenEditions to our millions of iHeartRadio listeners," said iHeartRadio Senior VP/Podcasting Chris Peterson. "We are committed to providing a robust all-in-one listening experience for our users and by teaming up with SpokenLayer, it allows us to bring innovative new content to iHeartRadio that we know our users will love."

"No other partner offers the massive and multi-channel reach of iHeartRadio. Adding our SpokenEditions to iHeartRadio gives their 100 million registered users access to unique news content from top sources every day unlike traditional weekly podcast content. The deal is a major win for all of our content publishing partners and most of all for listeners," added SpokenLayer CEO Will Mayo.
