WLW adds to podcasts

Have you noticed that WLW-AM has really jumped into podcasting? A year ago, the station only offered Gary Burbank bits and a few other things. Now through or Apple's iTunes you can get free downloads of entire Mike McConnell and Bill Cunningham shows, Rich Walberg’s funny “Showbiz Stuff” and Jim Scott’s interviews. WLW had 14,991 downloads last week, which put it in the top 5 among all Clear Channel stations.

More podcasts
HBO now has free audio and video podcasts from the second season of “Entourage” and “Deadwood,” which debuted Sunday. Go to or iTunes for them, or podcasts from “The Sopranos,” “Real Time with Bill Maher,” “Rome” or “Big Love.” In only a few months, “Real Time with Bill Maher” has topped 1 million downloads, HBO says.

That's cool! I like the idea of podcasting but I've never come across any that I wanted to use.

Far from anything to cause me to turn in my Sirius receiver but a pretty cool idea. Terrestrial radio is gonna need gimmicks like this to help beat out satellite and internet radio. Terrestrial radio is just boring.

Plus I can respect 97.3 for using a music related gimmick not some R-rated promotion to draw an audience, WEBN should take note.

John, Showtime has been podcasting as well for quite some time.

John, you spelled Rich's name wrong. It's Rich Walburg, not Walberg.
