|RADIO ONLINE | Monday, June 29, 2020|
Actor and director Kevin Connolly, best-known for "Entourage," has partnered with DAX to form ACTIONPARK MEDIA -- a media content hub specializing in podcast creation, distribution and monetization. The podcast talent includes actors, producers, writers, directors, entrepreneurs, executives, field experts, influencers and people worldwide with interesting stories to tell.
ACTIONPARK MEDIA will tap into DAX's reach of over one hundred million monthly U.S. listeners across a variety of streaming audio publishers covering music, news, sports/talk, play-by-play and spoken word. DAX will utilize its audience for cross-promotion to raise awareness and build audiences.
All content introduced through the partnership with DAX will be made available to its roster of Fortune 500 advertisers. Advertisers can sponsor podcasts via host-read ads that fit the context of each show, enabling them to align their brands with the content created and drive engagement with the audience. Listeners can subscribe to and download podcasts providing an environment in which advertisers will reach the right listeners at the right time.
"The way audio content is created and consumed in the age of new media is something that's been of great interest to me since the first time I listened to a podcast," commented ACTIONPARK MEDIA CEO Kevin Connolly. "ACTIONPARK MEDIA is a content hub focused on podcasts in all genres and creating intellectual property to develop for television and film. The team at DAX has been great to collaborate with and I look forward to being in business with them for years to come."
"We are more than excited to be partnered with Kevin as part of our joint venture with ACTIONPARK MEDIA, in the wake of an era where audio content is at its prime. Storytelling by way of audio, specifically podcasting, is an amazing medium to enable brands to connect with hard-to-reach audiences. ACTIONPARK represents an exciting opportunity for advertisers to tap into the digital audio market and create innovative campaigns," added DAX US CEO Matt Cutair.
Current series from ACTIONPARK MEDIA include "American Glutton" hosted by actor Ethan Suplee, "No Gruffs Given" hosted by Sean Avery, "Victory The Podcast" hosted by Doug Ellin & Kevin Dillon and "Home Team" presented by Sophie Julia. Series produced by ACTIONPARK MEDIA are available for listening on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify, as well as on actionparkmedia.com.
