The publisher has also announced a partnership with the biggest podcast platform in the world, Acast, which will now be the business’ exclusive hosting and distribution partner.
In the exclusive partnership, Acast will deliver technical infrastructure to manage, grow and distribute podcast content across all platforms. It will also offer sales representation and the ability to buy Pacific’s content through contextual collections.
“This partnership with Acast comes at a pivotal moment for Pacific as we continue to grow our podcast slate,” said Pacific head of commercial product, Danielle Lowry. “Audio is an increasingly important part of our business as our audience and advertising partners continue to embrace audio content. Teaming up with Acast will help us take this to the next level.”
