Podtrac shared its ranking of the top ten podcast publishers for July 2019. Overall, average U.S. monthly audience remained flat from June and rose 50% from July 2018. Four publishers from the chart reported slight decreases under Podtrac’s analysis of that metric.
All ten publishers on the list were the same as the ones in June, with only some shuffles in their ordering.
NPR continued to fend off iHeartRadio for the lead spot in the chart. Its 60 shows reached a unique monthly audience of nearly 20.78 million in the U.S., a slight increase from the month prior. iHeartRadio reported almost 18.42 million in unique monthly audience for its 244 shows, and was one of the publishers where that metric dipped.
