LOS ANGELES, CA - (NewMediaWire) - November 30, 2023 -  PodcastOne (NASDAQ: PODC), a leading podcast platform and a subsidiary of LiveOne (NASDAQ: LVO), which owns ~80% of the PODC common stock, announced today the highest programmatic revenue in company history for the second fiscal quarter of its fiscal year ending March 31, 2024 (“Q2 Fiscal Year 2024”), 121% growth over the same period last year.

Leveraging Adswizz’s ad serving technology, the industry wide shift and growth in programmatic advertising and PodcastOne’s expansive, premium inventory of highly sought after hosted podcasts, such as The Fighter & The Kid, The Adam Carolla Podcast, Cold Case Files, Coffee Convos and Off The Vine with Kaitlyn Bristowe, PodcastOne was able to deliver over 229 Million programmatic impressions for Q2 Fiscal Year 2024 an increase in impressions of 79% from the same period last year.

"The growth of programmatic advertising across the audio industry represents the maturation of podcasting as both a cultural medium and an advertising strategy. Like display, video, or CTV, it has proven to be an efficient, effective, and scalable strategy trusted by listeners and advertisers alike. As a network that’s leveraged programmatic for more than four years, our growth and momentum is credited to the appeal of our programming, the successful relationships with our programmatic partners, and the collaboration across the industry to educate and evolve programmatic audio," said Ellie Andrews, Director of Digital Operations for PodcastOne.

“In 2024 the podcast industry is poised to have over half a billion listeners with almost 50% of Americans admitting that they listen to podcasts. Time and time again it has been proven that advertisers can most effectively with cost efficiency reach consumers through our medium of podcasting. Our growth and forward momentum is credited to the strength and appeal of our programming with consumers and our sales team’s ability to capitalize on long standing relationships, creating new avenues of success for brands and our hosts,” said Kit Gray, President and Co-Founder of PodcastOne.
