iHeartMedia announced plans to acquire Stuff Media.

The move will make them the top commercial podcast publisher.

iHeartMedia who already provides digital music, podcasts, and live streaming radio will now add podcasts such as HowStuffWorks and more.

Through this acquisition, iHeart’s audience will double in size.

HowStuffWorks started in 1998 as a reference site and later expanded into podcasts.

Stuff Media records over 60 million global streaming downloads per month.

Their podcast called “Stuff You Should Know” has over 500 million downloads for 2018.

The company also has partnerships with ESPN, NPR to provide over 20,000 podcasts with 750 iHeartRadio shows.

The acquisition focus is to merge Stuff Media’s creative content with iHeartMedia’s resources and scale.

This will help provide advertisers with more opportunities to reach users and increase iHeart’s ad revenue.
