Southern Cross Austereo (SCA) is announcing a deepened relationship with Australian TV network and podcast producer Network 10. The tie-up is a multi-year agreement for distribution, hosting, sales representation, and development of new podcast co-productions in 2022 and beyond.
Network 10’s existing podcasts (see below) will move to SCA-owned LiSTNR for exclusive hosting and distribution.
New co-produced podcasts are in the wind for 2022, though we have no specifics at this time. We are told that new shows will “take a unique approach,” which is keyed to concurrent TV productions.
“Our partnership with Network 10 expands on our existing regional television affiliation agreement as we jointly explore avenues to invest in new and existing audio on demand offerings. From existing to future franchises, we aim to provide a multi-platform video and audio offer to our broad and expanding audiences. This is a unique and exciting approach and one that complements the LiSTNR suite of content,” SCA CEO, Grant Blackley, said.
