Successful Farming partners to expand podcast network

Global Ag Network podcasts become part of advertising sales program.

If you enjoy listening to podcasts (such as the regular Successful Farming Podcast), you’re one of millions of people enjoying this booming medium. Whether it’s for entertainment, information, or news, podcasts continue to grow. And farmers and ranchers are active listeners, as well.

About 20% of Americans listen to podcasts on a weekly basis, according to SEMrush. The growth curve is significant, as well: by 2024, projections estimate that more than 100 million people will be listening to podcasts. Farmers and ranchers are joining the medium, as well. Successful Farming research shows that almost 25% of farmers listen to general podcasts, and 35% of farmers listen to ag-related podcasts, according the 2020 Farmers’ Use of Media survey fielded by Successful Farming.

This continued growth is why Successful Farming announced recently that it is expanding its podcast advertising capability with an exclusive advertising sales partnership with Global Ag Network, the premiere podcast network for farmers and ranchers.

Successful Farming is adding the Ag News Daily and Working Cows podcasts, among others in the Global Ag Network, to its advertising sales platform, creating a more robust offering for marketers looking to connect with farmers and ranchers through audio.

Global Ag Network
The Global Ag Network is a collection of podcasts covering a range of topics in agriculture, and includes:

“For nearly 120 years, we have empowered and inspired farmers and ranchers across the country,” says Dave Kurns, editorial content director of Successful Farming. “In addition to our very popular Successful Farming branded podcasts, the new Global Ag Network of podcasts will help meet farmers’ needs every day, wherever they are.”

“Global Ag Network has always strived to highlight thought leaders on the various podcasts within the network,” says Howell. “Now we get to extend that goal even further by partnering with the Meredith team.”

“We are excited about expanding the scale and volume of podcasts to our agricultural marketing partners,” says Marty Wolske, director of sales and marketing for Successful Farming, part of Meredith Agrimedia. “Podcasts are the latest go-to information source for farmers and ranchers. We are excited to add Global Ag Network, led by Delaney Howell, and the Ag News Daily podcast to our suite of offerings for our marketing partners.”

Successful Farming, which is owned by Meredith Corporation, joins with Meredith’s growing roster of 15 current podcasts across its portfolio, which includes brands such as PEOPLE, Entertainment Weekly, Allrecipes, Food & Wine, Southern Living, InStyle, and Health.
