What is Audioboom?
audioBoom is the leading mobile, web and connected device platform for the very best spoken-word content in news, current affairs, business, entertainment and sports.
We operate a digital, on-demand, streaming audio platform enabling the creation, broadcast and consumption of audio. audioBoom works with some of the biggest names in broadcasting across sport, entertainment and current affairs, such as Cumulus Media, Sky Sports, talkSPORT, the Premier League, Yahoo! Sports, Associated Press, Reuters, the Guardian, and the Telegraph to bring their content to millions of listeners worldwide via our unique distribution network.
audioBoom offers advertisers the opportunity to reach highly-engaged and captive listeners, typically on mobile devices, through the world’s first aggregated advertising and syndication network
Using our revolutionary audio-stitching technology, Audio Only ads can now be served anywhere the audio is heard, including third party apps, Facebook embeds, iTunes, and Google Play Podcasts (coming soon). And on the web, we can also serve audio with clickable companions and video.
We also allow advertisers to select one, many or all of our Content Channels in order to find their audience – given the broad range of podcasts we carry, we can create baskets of Channels that skew male or female, young or old, or around core interests.
