Podango, the only podcast station platform, announced a partnership with Scott Bourne today. Bourne will partner with Podango as an executive strategic advisor. Bourne, a podcasting industry leader, brings industry insight, relationships, and business development opportunities to Podango.
"Scott is a recognized leader in the podcasting space and brings additional strength to the Podango team," said Lee Gibbons, Podango CEO. "The podcasting market is in its infancy, and it is critical for us to make smart, informed decisions. Scott has been in podcasting from the early days. His expertise will add to our ability to accelerate our trajectory in this new market."
Podango is the only platform that enables podcasters to create podcast stations for market expansion and distribution. It has more than 40 podcast stations live or under development with dozens more being added weekly. Station Directors and stations include: Paul Colligan's "Internet Marketing Podcast Network," Brandon Hull's "Real World Selling" and John Jantsch's "Duct Tape Marketing."
Since the formal launch of Podango in September and its associated growth, Podango has looked for a partner with specific industry knowledge. "Scott's experience in building NetRadio and his current podcasting industry street smarts make him an ideal advisor and friend for our business," said Gibbons. "Formalizing his role as an advisor is a natural step that benefits both of us."
Scott has already championed the Podango model of assembling a network of quality podcasting stations and social networking tools. "It is with great excitement that I have accepted this role," Bourne said.
