Locked On Adds MLB Podcasts To Number One Daily Local Podcast Network
Park City—The Locked On Podcast Network (www.lockedonpodcasts.com) which has built its popular media enterprise upon short-form, daily local market podcasts for each NFL and NBA team is moving into major league baseball coverage beginning with the start of the 2019 MLB regular season. The move represents a natural evolution for the two-year-old plus start-up which is already the number one daily local sports podcast network in the country.
The 2019 major league baseball season begins with several great storylines. Locked On will cover them all with its hallmark year-round, short-form, local daily podcasts as well a national Locked On MLB show. According to Locked On Founder and CEO, David Locke: “the daily schedule of games for all MLB teams aligns perfectly with the daily rhythm of the Locked On podcast format. For baseball, our local shows will follow an even faster-paced 15-minute format, giving avid fans daily coverage that matches the rapid MLB news and game cycle.”
The network’s MLB launch will include local Locked On shows for nearly 20 teams including clubs in New York, Boston, Chicago, Toronto, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Atlanta, Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Baltimore, Texas, St. Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Colorado, Philadelphia and Houston with the full line-up scheduled to grow weekly over the early part of the MLB season.
As hope springs eternal for 30 MLB teams, Locked On will cover all the ups and downs with daily podcasts full of game coverage, news, and insights from its roster of expert hosts and MLB insiders. In New York and Boston, die-hard baseball fans can follow one of the greatest epic rivalries in all of sport with Stacey Gotsulias hosting Locked On Yankees, while Jake Devereaux covers the reigning World Series Champions for Locked On Red Sox. Texas fans will find out if their young talent can take the next step forward from insiders Brice Paterik and Morgan Price as co-hosts of Locked On Rangers. And, Paul Francis Sullivan returns to daily baseball podcasting as the host of Locked On MLB when he brings his wit, miles-deep baseball knowledge, and top-rated Sully Baseball podcast over to the Locked On Podcast Network.
The launch of Locked On’s MLB coverage will add to the company’s preeminence as a leading producer of local sports podcasts in the country. The high-flying start-up already produces some 450 episodes a week, delivering local professional and college sports podcasts in nearly sixty different major metro markets in the US and Canada. Locked On is not just the clear leader in daily local sports podcasts, it’s also one of the top producers of podcasts in the country.
Locked On launched in June of 2016 from a single daily podcast that Utah Jazz play-by-play voice David Locke still hosts and produces as Locked On Jazz. Today, the company generates five million listens per month, consisting of a core prized demographic of avid sports fans who crave any coverage they can get about their favorite teams and are enthralled with Locked On’s short-form, daily podcast model. Locked On believes that a huge void exists in targeting local audiences, especially passionate sports fans, and that daily, short-form podcasts will become a dominant format for this rapidly growing and ever-evolving new medium.
The Locked On Podcast Network is the nation’s number one producer of daily local sports podcasts and one of the top producers of podcast episodes in the country. Locked On covers NBA, NFL, MLB, as well as leading major college sports teams with short-form, 15-30 minute, daily podcasts reaching nearly 60 different major metropolitan areas and avid sports fans wherever they live. The company also produces nation-wide podcasts covering the major sports leagues and has some of the industry’s top-ranked draft and fantasy sports podcasts. Locked On podcast listens doubled in 2018 to 5 million monthly listens and growth continues strongly upward in 2019.
