ABS-CBN Corporation, through ABS-CBN Entertainment, continues to foray into the podcast world as part of the networks efforts to expand its services to cater to the content needs of all customer segments in the Filipino digital market.
In a statement, the network said ABS-CBN Entertainment has launched the podcasts of its digital shows Hotspot, Kapamilya Chat, Push Bets, Push Most Wanted, and Push Extra Scoop with Podcast Network Asia.
Podcast Network Asia, the biggest podcast network in Southeast Asia, and ABS-CBN Entertainment are co-producing the 5 Kapamilya podcasts to reach listeners who are interested in celebrity programs.
“We know that many Pinoys love showbiz personalities and the occasional gossip, and seeing the rise of podcasts in the Philippines, we thought of reaching that audience who may be engaged with our celebrity programs,” said ABS-CBN Deputy Head of Digital Entertainment Domileo Espejo.
He added that, “Hopefully, these talk shows which feature both up-and-coming, as well as popular artists, entertain and resonate well with the listeners.” Podcast Network Asia is home to more than 200 podcasts. The network covers different interests like entertainment, lifestyle, society, and more.
Speaking on behalf of Podcast Network Asia, Chief of Content and Operating Officer Atty. Josef Acuña expressed gratitude and excitement about this partnership.
“We are grateful to ABS-CBN for the confidence and trust to work with us on these projects. We are excited to work with them and make the podcast experience of their listeners both enjoyable and worthwhile. From the onset, our goal has always been to amplify voices, and we are excited to amplify the voice of one of the country’s biggest media networks,” said Acuña.
