PodcastOne Welcomes “Beyond the Darkness” to Jericho Network


The supernatural is coming to the Jericho Network in “Beyond the Darkness“, a new program announced by Norman Pattiz in December of 2016. The Jericho Network, headed by WWE star Chris Jericho is one of the many that are part of PodcastOne, the largest advertiser-supported podcast network in America. Hosting “Beyond the Darkness” are Dave Schader and Tim Dennis, who are already known for their otherworldly broadcasting and are expected to bring a new plethora of fans to the network. Chris is proud to welcome this paranormal addition to his network and evolve it beyond its simple start as a wrestling network.

Norman Pattiz launched PodcastOne and PodcastOne Sales in June of 2016. Pattiz began his digital career after leaving his radio network Westwood One, America’s largest radio network in the Broadcast Industry. He met Kit Gray, a representative of several podcasts, who helped Pattiz recognize that podcasts were essentially a digitized Westwood One. Now Pattiz’ days are filled with his small PodcastOne business that has made a huge name for itself in the industry already. He says that he loves the democratic nature of podcasting and how a program’s success depends completely on the consumer. Norman is not new to this form of business but adores learning the ins and outs of a new digital platform where information flows so uninhibited that anyone and everyone can become an expert. It goes against his long-held belief that knowing the craft is the secret to success, but instead emphasizes the importance of content and the interest of the consumer.

Pattiz formed the broadcasting network Westwood One in the seventies and served as Executive Chairman following its rise to fame. It included news stations, sports radio, traffic radio, the Mutual Broadcasting System, and several other famed programs. He was appointed in 2000 and, once again, in 2002 to be on the Broadcasting Board of Governors of the United States of America, which serves over US nonmilitary broadcasting services. In 2009, Pattiz was inducted into the National Radio Hall of Fame and received the Giants of Broadcasting Award from the Library of American Broadcasting, he has received many other prestigious awards and honors throughout his longstanding career in the industry.
