iHeartRadio, No. IHeartRadio, the No, announced the second annual search for the best commercial podcast publishers worldwide. The Next Great Podcast. In collaboration with Tongal, Tongal launched the inaugural initiative last year. Nearly 1,800 submissions were received from creators of all ages and geographies. Starting today, creators from around the globe will be able to pitch for the chance of producing a new podcast. They can do this between September 17th and 17, 2021. Fans can view the award-winning 2020 creators Lianna Hollyston and Siena Jeakle’s “Tossed Corn,” a new movie review podcast hosted by two friends who “don’t like movies.” It launched earlier this month.

Patrick, a well-known figure in broadcasting sports and podcasting, shared his excitement about finding the next excellent podcaster.

Dan Patrick said, “Our first season of The Next Greatest Podcast exceeded all my expectations.” Our contest has the most fantastic variety of voices and stories submitted by our fans from all over the globe. This is what I love the most. I am sure that the second year of our contest will be even more impressive than the first. I cannot wait to hear the Danettes. “

Tongal CEO James DeJulio looks forward to collaborating with iHeartRadio and discovering new voices.

DeJulio stated that “Partnering to develop and discover another groundbreaking podcast will connect our diverse communities of creators with access to a career-defining chance,” DeJulio said. Tongal’s platform makes it easy for creators to access exciting opportunities such as Tongal’s original content and storytelling.

According to the release, creators will need to submit a synopsis of the podcast’s idea and treatment and links to past work, an audio trailer, and a pitch video. The panel of podcasters headed by Dan Patrick, a legendary broadcaster, will narrow down the submissions and give ten semifinalists $1,000 to develop their idea into an original 10-minute pilot. The pilots will be available for everyone to view and vote on in the fall via “The Next Great Podcast.” The winner will also work closely alongside Patrick and iHeartRadio’s podcast producers to make their podcast a unique series for distribution by The iHeartPodcast Network.

Will Pearson, COO of The iHeartPodcast Network, stated that “Podcasting continues to thrive as a creative medium” and “a launchpad for new talents.” “After last year’s success with ‘Tossed popcorn’s innovative approach to movie reviews, we are excited for Tongal to continue our collaboration as we seek out 2021’s next great podcast.
