—PodShow’s Popular Video and Audio Shows Earn Top Honors Competing Against All Media—
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. (January 30, 2007) — PodShow, Inc., the #1 new media network, delivering thousands of hours of the best in video, audio, music and other killer content to a global audience of millions, today announced that two of the network’s leading shows, Rumor Girls and Radio Nostalgia, ranked in the top ten video and audio shows on the Top Podcasts for 2006 list released by PodZinger. This accolade is particularly powerful in that the shows were not only competing with other independent media but also with media from traditional, well established networks such as CNN and ABC.
“PodShow is proud to see an increasing amount of our programming top charts across the Internet, and it is especially gratifying to note that these great shows outperformed content from mainstream media,” says PodShow Co founder, Adam Curry. “By bringing together great talent and producers from shows like Rumor Girls and Radio Nostalgia with a growing audience that is hungry for the best in entertainment, I believe that we are increasingly demonstrating PodShow’s position as the #1 new media network.”
“We’ve worked very hard in 2006 to bring Rumor Girls to new viewers through spreading awareness as well as branching off to new Rumor Girls shows such as ‘Rumor Girls Diaries’ and ‘Rumor Girls UNCUT’ and we’ve had our biggest year ever in terms of growth,” says Franklin McMahon, Producer of Rumor Girls. “Show stars Karla and Karen Gilbert have done a great job with all three of our shows, and we have some big plans in 2007 to do even more.”
“We have always believed that early radio had appeal to a wide audience,” says Dennis Humphrey, Co producer of Radio Nostalgia Network. “The success of our programs, with content from the 1920s through the 1950s, proves that listeners are hungry for time-honored quality entertainment.”
