ABC reveals million dollar podcast kitty

By Jonas Lopez in Media News on
Aspiring podcasters may have a chance to get their show going thanks to a new $1 million podcast fund, ABC Radio boss Michael Mason announced at OzPod 2017 in Sydney today.
 
Administered by ABC Audio Studios, the one-year fund will be used to aid podcasters developing ideas and producing the shows, from format drafting to content.
 
“The fund will also be used to commission podcasts around specific communities and their interests across a wide range of activities including sport, culture, lifestyle, comedy, and the arts. We see an enormous opportunity to reach out to some of Australia’s most talented podcasters and give them the opportunity to benefit from our expertise and experience … The ABC has had phenomenal success with its podcast format over recent years and this fund allows us to invest not only in the extension of our own podcast content but also content from the brightest, freshest creative talent in this field,” said Mason.
