Podtrac has posted its May ranking of podcast publishers. NPR continued its reign at the top of the chart with a U.S. unique monthly audience of nearly 18.9 million and more than 142.28 million global unique streams and downloads. The only change from the April results was a rise for WNYC Studios, which was the only publisher to increase its unique monthly audience from the previous month.
Across all of the top ten publishers, the average U.S. unique monthly audience was 8.6 million. The figure was down just 2% from April and up 41% on-year from May 2018. Global unique downloads and streams for the month increased 6% over the April result.
