Actor and director Kevin Connolly, best-known for American TV series Entourage, has joined forces with Global’s DAX to launch Actionpark Media – a new premier podcast content hub.
Eager to draw in highly engaged and diverse audiences, the network will bring podcast talent from a range of professional capacities including actors, producers, writers, directors, entrepreneurs, executives, field experts, influencers and people from around the world with interesting stories to tell. Actionpark will tap into DAX’s reach of over one hundred million monthly US listeners across a variety of streaming audio publishers covering music, news, sports-talk, play by play and spoken word.
All content introduced through this exclusive partnership with DAX will be made available to advertisers who’ll be able to sponsor podcasts via host-read ads that fit the context of each show, enabling them to align their brands with the unique content created and drive high engagement with the audience.
Kevin Connolly, CEO of Actionpark Media said: “The way audio content is created and consumed in the age of new media is something that’s been of great interest to me since the first time I listened to a podcast. Actionpark Media is a content hub focused on podcasts in all genres and creating intellectual property to develop for television and film. The team at DAX has been great to collaborate with and I look forward to being in business with them for years to come.”
Matt Cutair, CEO of DAX US said: “We are more than excited to be partnered with Kevin as part of our joint venture with ACTIONPARK MEDIA, in the wake of an era where audio content is at its prime. Storytelling by way of audio, specifically podcasting, is an amazing medium to enable brands to connect with hard-to-reach audiences. ACTIONPARK represents an exciting opportunity for advertisers to tap into the digital audio market and create innovative campaigns.”
Current series from Actionpark Media include American Glutton, hosted by actor Ethan Suplee; No Gruffs Given, hosted by Sean Avery; Victory The Podcast, hosted by Doug Ellin and Kevin Dillon; and Home Team, presented by Sophie Julia. Series produced by Actionpark Media are available for listening on all major podcast platforms, including Apple Podcasts and Spotify, as well as on ACTIONPARKMEDIA.com.
