Westwood One Pitch Pod

The Westwood One Pitch Pod is a traveling pod we take on the road to discover indie talent. Podcasters step into this mini-studio and pitch their show ideas to us for a chance to join the Westwood One Podcast Network roster. We made our first stop earlier this summer at Podcast Movement in Philadelphia, where over 100 conference attendees pitched their podcast. See some of them here! 

Thank you Podcast Movement 2018!!


We just announced our first winner: Allante Whitmore and her show BLK + In Grad School, which is joining The Empow(h)er Podcast Network. This new podcast network from Westwood One is launching with nine original podcasts series to inspire the medium’s rapidly growing female audience.  Here is Allante’s pitch:

This is just the beginning for Allante as she goes from indie to major distribution, broadening the topics on her show to many of life’s milestones as a young black woman.

Stay tuned for more Westwood One Pitch Pod announcements coming soon!
