PodcastOne is the top rated podcast in the world with over 400 million impressions. The podcast network was launched in the year 2012 as Launch Pad, but has since changed its name to PodcastOne. One of the reasons for its success is the fact that it is owned by one of the best media professionals in the world, Norman Pattiz.
Norman Pattiz has over 4 decades of experience in the syndicated media industry. He founded Westwood One, which came to be the world’s leading source of entertainment, news and sports. He was the CEO of the company before selling it. He was also selected, by President Bill Clinton, to be in the Broadcasting Board of Governors, in the year 2000. He was again reappointed to the board in the year 2002 and was placed in charge of launching Televison and Radio, in Arabic language, in all the 22 Middle East Countries. And, in the year 2009, he was appointed to the National Radio Hall of Fame.
First forward to the year 2012, a few years after retiring, Norman Pattiz was introduced to Kit Gray, who had this brilliant idea of starting a podcast. Having been in the media industry for so long, he knew that this was the future and even though he was retired, this wasn’t an opportunity he was ready to let pass him. Therefore, he partnered with Kit Gray and began PodcastOne. Learn more: http://www.bizjournals.com/losangeles/potmsearch/detail/submission/6417371/Norman_Pattiz
Today, PodcastOne continues to be at a competitive edge above all its competitors because of the numerous shows that it hosts.

The variety of shows, which have episodes released every Monday, is one of the reasons why the podcast is so successful.
Recently, the podcast opened a new show, All of the Above with Norman Lear. The new show will discuss all possible life topics (https://ideamensch.com/norman-pattiz/). Norman Lear with co-host Paul Hipp will be hosting the show. They will be host politicians, religious leaders, celebrities in various industries and commoners.
