Pocket Casts, a leading mobile app for podcast listening, has been acquired by a consortium that includes Chicago Public Media WBEZ 91.5-FM, NPR, WNYC Studios and “This American Life.” “Thanks to the mission-driven nature of this partnership, and of public media overall, we’ll put the needs of producers and listeners at the heart of everything we do with Pocket Casts,” Goli Sheikholeslami, CEO of Chicago Public Media, said in a statement Thursday. “We plan to work with producers to find new and broader audiences, which will enable creators to better connect with fans and potential audiences and build a sustainable business for their podcast.” Financial terms of the deal were not disclosed.
