Atlantic Media's business-to-government publisher, the Government Executive Media Group, is expanding its podcast lineup.
The Government Executive site, which covers news for federal managers, such as defense, tech, pay and oversight, launched the “GovExec Daily” podcast Feb. 24. The publication has been serving its select readership for 50 years.
The debut podcast explores the legacy of Margaret Weichert, director of management for OMB (Office of Management and Budget), who announced her departure from government is imminent. She was the White House’s leading personnel point person.
Ross Gianfortune, the publication's engagement editor, will host. The podcasts will be an estimated 20 minutes in length.
“GovExec Daily” will utilize expert interviews and critical analysis to take a deeper look at stories affecting federal employees. Tim Hartman, CEO, Government Executive Media Group, stated: “There is an incredible opportunity to serve our audience with more content across more platforms, especially in the sectors we cover.”
“GovExec Daily” joins existing podcasts in the Government Executive Podcast Network. Last year, the portfolio, which includes “Defense One Radio” and Nextgov’s “Critical Update,” had more than 500,000 listeners, according to Hartman.
“Defense One Radio” won two Eddie awards for journalism excellence in 2019.
GovExec Daily is available across various podcast platforms, including Apple, Spotify, Google and Stitcher.
GEMG says it reaches over 1.9 million government influencers cross-platform. Atlantic Media includes prominent political brands, such as The Atlantic and National Journal.
