NBC first broadcast TV network to launch own TV-based podcast network

NBC has become the first American broadcast TV network to launch its own podcast network that complements its primetime programming.

The NBC Entertainment Podcast Network has launched this summer with podcasts devoted to Late Night with Seth Meyers, American Ninja Warrior and The Good Place. You can find these podcast episodes on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Play and other major platforms.

“With the success of the ‘Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast,’ we saw an opportunity to expand our storytelling beyond the broadcast and offer a deeper dive into their favorite shows,” said Rob Hayes, Executive Vice President, NBC Entertainment Digital. “Our new NBC Entertainment Podcast Network gives fans a chance to hear more in-depth stories these shows, all from the point of view of the collaborators that put each addicting episode together.”

On the American Ninja Warrior Podcast, favorite ninjas join show hosts Matt Iseman and Akbar Gbajabiamila for exclusive conversations about their lives on and off the course.

Hosted by The Good Place guest-star Marc Evan Jackson, The Good Place – The Podcast finds Jackson joined by a rotating slate of co-hosts and special guests, including actors, writers, producers and more from the sitcom. Among them: stars Jameela Jamil, Manny Jacinto and D’Arcy Carden as well as writers Megan Amram, Joe Mande, and Alan Yang.

The Late Night with Seth Meyers Podcast: Summer Fridays comes out six times this summer when the talk show is on hiatus, featuring original content. Included: Meyers conducting exclusive interviews as well as original comedy sketches, political discussion from “Late Night” writers and special guests, summer reading recommendations and more.
