The NextUp Initiative

The NextUp Initiative for the iHeartPodcast Network is a new program that will put creators from all backgrounds, including members of historically underrepresented groups, in a five month long podcasting bootcamp. There will be a two week orientation from August 9th to August 20th, different iHeart employees will guide you through the basic steps of creating, editing, marketing, and launching a podcast.

This unique program will provide creators with an opportunity to learn from the best in the industry, and develop a podcast centered around their distinct voice. By the end of the program we will expect the participant to have a minimum of three completed podcast episodes and a pitch for their show. They will be given the opportunity to pitch the show to a panel of iHeartPodcast Network development executives with the chance of having their show picked up by the network.
