Crowd Network, the Manchester-based audio-on-demand network, is celebrating its one-year anniversary having more than doubled its headcount.
The network has grown from four founders to a team of 11, with more hires expected in the near future as the network ramps up podcast production. The company has now launched 14 new shows, including The Joe Marler Show, The Geraint Thomas Cycling Club, Alan Cumming’s Shelves, Murder In House Two and the chart-topping American Vigilante. It launched a new lifestyle show fronted by Sam and Billie Faiers in late November, The Sam and Billie Show.
Mike Carr, CEO at Crowd Network said: “The growth of the team over the last twelve months is testament to the quality of the work that we’ve produced and launched this year. We’re attracting some of the best talent in the field, from producer to presenter level, helping us build a strong pipeline of fascinating new shows and growing the listeners for our existing pods.
“We knew we had something special when we first launched, least of all because we were able to generate significant investor interest and backing even during a pandemic, and we’ve built on these foundations since. Our team has benefitted from Manchester’s thriving creative and business community, and are proving that you can build a successful podcast outfit outside of the capital, even without the scale or resources of the major broadcasters.
