FIRST PODCAST SITE DEDICATED TO
THE AFRICAN AMERICAN EXPERIENCE PREMIERES
Radio Facts’ New Podcast Port Accepting Both Established and New Shows
LOS ANGELES, – The first all-urban podcast site, PODCAST PORT, featuring a range of topics pertinent to African Americans, continues to expand in 2017. The portal gives listeners a choice of broadcasts available from a single platform, and gives producers and hosts an opportunity to expand both their listenership and their production expertise. The unique portal is produced by the long-running radio trade organization Radio Facts.
“Our Radio Facts Radio Show Podcast on Podbean received close to 1.5 million downloads,” says Kevin Ross, CEO of Podcast Port. “I realized we had the potential for a much greater audience on a site dedicated to African American concerns and topics. While there are a lot of amazing podcast shows out there, it's a lot of work to find the shows that are of specific interest to African Americans.”
Podcast Port is actively looking for new and established shows targeted to African Americans, which will be premiered and promoted directly to the broadcast industry as well as radio listeners. “We are in not married to commercial radio concepts,” says Ross, who hosts the podcasts “Pennies from Kevin” and “Radio Facts Radio Show,” which have garnered more than 1 million downloads on an independent site. “We want shows from all walks of the black experience,” he says, adding that podcasts focusing on problems should discuss solutions, while listeners will sign online consent to access adult content.
Podcast Port will consider podcasts based on the following topics: Tech * Commercial Radio * Syndication * Education * Black Media * Black Business * Politics * Health * Food * Real Estate * Money * Psychology * LGBT Subjects * Mental Illness * Social Media * Life after 40 * Hip Hop * Jazz * World Issues * Show Business * Black Women * Advertising * Law * Crime * Love and Relationships * Music * and more.

Subscribers will also gain access to content with advice on production and hosting techniques to create compelling podcasts.
