Schwartz Media CEO Rebecca Costello said: “7am has been a huge success since launch. We have found an enormous new audience for our journalism, and we are happy to be working with Acast to expand opportunities for the podcast. Every morning 7am produces some of the best reporting in the country, and I look forward to seeing it continue to grow.”
Acast content director Guy Scott-Wilson comments: “7am has become a giant of Australian podcasting, and we’re delighted to welcome this show to Acast, where it sits alongside our network of premium publishers, and to work with the team to drive further reach and monetisation opportunities for this incredibly valuable news program.
