Jun 25, 2018


TORONTO, June 25, 2018 /CNW/ – In the era of digital-everything, the demand for high quality on-the-go audio content is growing fast. Today, Rogers Radio has launched the Frequency Podcast Network and new original podcast series, The Big Story – offering listeners engaging and relevant content that isn’t available anywhere else.

Available weekdays at 6 a.m. ETThe Big Story breaks down one critical story every day – anything from politics and entertainment, to sports, technology and human interest – all in 15 minutes.

“From one curious person to another, The Big Story is for the people who ask big questions. It’s not a news segment, it’s about digging further into what’s impacting Canadians,” said Jordan Heath-Rawlings, host of The Big Story and Director, Digital Radio & Audio, Rogers Media. “We will delve into the story that’s everywhere, the one everyone has an opinion on. And whether it’s serious, funny, terrifying or occasionally bizarre, we’ll arm you with a deeper understanding and a new perspective.”

Joining Heath-Rawlings each day on the podcast is a rotating roster of talented journalists from award-winning and trusted media brands including Maclean’s, MoneySense, Today’s Parent, Chatelaine, CityNews, and reporters on the ground at Rogers Radio stations across the country.

Building on the success of Sportsnet’s new podcasts, A Swing and a Belt with Dan Shulman and 31 Thoughts: The Podcast with Elliotte Friedman and Jeff Marek, Frequency Podcast Network will be a one-stop-shop for all Rogers Media podcasting content, including The Roz and Mocha Show.

“More than ever before, Canadians are listening to digital audio whether they’re at home or on-the-go commuting to work,” said Julie Adam, Senior Vice President, Rogers Radio. “Frequency Podcast Network provides our listeners a home-base for the highest quality audio content and allows our sales partners an opportunity to align their brands.”

The Big Story is available on Apple Podcasts and Google Play.
