iHeart Launches All Podcast Format In Lehigh Valley
iHeartMedia has flipped Spanish Sports “ESPN Deportes 1470” WSAN Allentown PA to an all Podcast format.
The new “iHeartPodcast AM 1470” features a library of podcasts heard on the iHeartRadio app. The station continues to serve as the English language flagship for Lehigh Valley Phantoms hockey.
This is not the first time a station has attempted a format out of repurposed podcasts. CBS Radio operated “K-YOU Radio” 1550 KYCY San Francisco from 2005 through 2008. While that station focused on podcast content submitted by listeners, WSAN is utilizing iHeartMedia’s large archive of owned content.
iHeartMedia Allentown announced today the debut of The iHeartPodcast Channel on AM 1470 – all the best podcasts, now on your radio – effective immediately.
The iHeartPodcast Channel will broadcast on AM 1470 around the clock, showcasing today’s most popular podcasts and will allow listeners to discover them through the radio. The new station will be a one-stop shop for a variety of podcasts including trendy shows such as the fan-favorites “Stuff You Should Know,” “Part Time Genius,” “Broken Harts” and many more.
“The iHeartPodcast Channel is a carefully curated experience that brings you the most creative stories from over 25,000 podcasts available on our free iHeartRadio app,” said Craig Stevens, Senior Vice President of Programming for iHeartMedia Allentown. “From true crime to history, comedy to food, we’ll cover dozens of topics every week.”
