PodcastOne has announced that star podcast host Adam Carolla has re-signed with the network in a five-year deal of exclusive ad sales and marketing. Terms were not disclosed in the announcement, but agreement extends across the Carolla Digital suite of programs, as well as a development aspect for creating new shows.
Adam Carolla is described as “The world’s most listened-to podcaster,” a claim supported by the Guiness Book of World Records title for most downloaded podcasts.
PodcastOne founder and CEO Norm Pattiz offered this praise to his star producer: “I learned one lesson very early in life — if you want to do something, do it with the best. I’ve been working with Adam since his Loveline days, and I hope that my obituary is read on his show first.”
Pattiz’s network concentrates on celebrity-driven podcasts, with a 200-show portfolio that includes Carolla, Shaquille O’Neal, Steve Austin, Heather Dubrow, Shawn and Larry King, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi, Heather McDonald, Dr. Drew, Penn Jillette, Dan Patrick, and Jay Mohr. Adam Carolla has been with PodcastOne since it started.
