PHOENIX, Ariz. (July 23, 2019) – Skyview Networks and Amplifi Media announce the creation of a strategic partnership to drive the development of custom audio solutions for brands seeking to reach consumers across all audio platforms and devices.

Amplifi Media is a recognized leader in the digital audio space, producing top listener-focused branded podcasts, and is available to agencies and CMOs immediately for 2020 upfront collaboration.
“Branded podcasts are a rapidly emerging segment of podcast revenue, having grown more than 6X to $67 million from 2018-19, and are forecast to increase to $100 million by 2021,” said Steve Jones, President and COO of Skyview Networks. “Working with Amplifi Media, we’ll be better positioned to meet the developing needs of consumer brands that are seeking a voice strategy.”

Under the new arrangement, CMOs seeking to differentiate their brands with custom audio content will have access to Skyview’s network of 5,000 radio stations to create awareness of their branded podcast and/or smart speaker initiatives.
