[ad_1]

Over 4 Million Downloads and 114 Episodes Since 2021 Debut

LOS ANGELES, CA – (NewMediaWire) – February 05, 2024 – PodcastOne (NASDAQ: PODC), a leading podcast platform and a subsidiary of LiveOne (NASDAQ: LVO), which owns ~80% of the PODC outstanding common stock, announced today that it entered into a new agreement with Kelly Stafford for her The Morning After with Kelly Stafford & Hank Podcast for the exclusive distribution and advertising sales rights of the podcast. The headline-making Apple charting show launched in 2021 and joined the PodcastOne network in 2022.

She’s mother to four young girls and her husband is a Super Bowl winning QB; his daughter is obsessed with dinosaurs. Kelly Stafford and bestie Hank Winchester know a thing or two about pressure, the spotlight, and keeping it all together for their kiddos. Stafford’s insight on the intensity of professional football, and his life working in television news (“Help Me Hank WDIV NBC Detroit”) is not for the faint of heart. Their stories about life and raising kids will not only have you laughing, but they’ll make you feel connected to the chaos we’re all trying to navigate. So sit back, pour a splash and let’s have a time!

“Kelly is a leading voice in the parenting influencer space. She has been a big part of our network and we are thrilled to have her extend with us.  We love the recent addition of Hank as co-host of The Morning After and can’t wait to see where the show goes moving forward,” said Kit Gray, President and Co-Founder of PodcastOne.

“We can’t wait to share more stories, more special moments and of course more splashes. Having y’all along on this ride and engaging with you makes it all the better. Thank you to PodcastOne for supporting us as we continue to grow our Morning After community in 2024,” said Stafford and Winchester.
