IHeartRadio Is Looking, Once Again, for The Next Great Podcast

If you’re one of the many, many people that started a podcast, comedy or otherwise, during lockdown or, at the very least, were someone who really fleshed out what you wanted to do with a podcast rather than just thinking about it in passing, you have a pretty great opportunity coming your way thanks to iHeartRadio and Tongal.

Just like they did last year with The Next Great Podcast, they’re taking pitches for such a podcast from now until Sept. 17th. One show from however many submissions they get will be rewarded with being developed into a full fledged show on the iHeartPodcast network.

Here are the specific details:

  • You can pitch us your podcast here through noon PT on September 17, 2021.
  • Pitches will be evaluated by a panel of podcast luminaries, led by head judge Dan Patrick.
  • 10 semi-finalists will each receive $1,000 to produce a 10-minute pilot and fans all over the globe will vote for their favorite.
  • ONE show will be named The Next Great Podcast 2021, and its Creator will be interviewed by legendary broadcaster Dan Patrick and work closely with iHeartRadio to develop their series for The iHeartPodcast Network.

Hear a little more and get to pitching here.
