In late 2021, British media company Immediate Media launched the Radio Times Podcast inviting the biggest stars from the world of television and entertainment to talk about their favourite TV programmes past and present. The podcast just recently celebrated one million downloads since its launch. Its third series brings listeners weekly interviews with television's biggest names, finding out about their TV viewing habits and delving into their careers. Previous guests include Harry Potter actor Daniel Radcliffe, British rapper KSI, and actor and writer Stephen Fry. Radio Times also produces a weekly companion podcast, Smart TV, giving bite-size expert guidance to the best TV and streaming recommendations for the coming week.
“Achieving one million downloads in 18 months is a fantastic achievement. With the explosion of streaming platforms, the choice of programmes is richer than it’s ever been before, so launching a podcast to hear from the biggest stars from the world of entertainment and offering the best guidance made perfect sense. The success of our award-winning podcast has enabled Radio Times to connect with a new generation of fans, expanding our brand’s footprint beyond traditional print, digital, and live events and into the audio realm. We’re eager to see where this journey takes us next!”
