News Corp Australia and Nova Entertainment have partnered to boost their podcast offering.

As part of the tie-up, Nova and Acast will host all of News Corp Austraia’s podcasts, such as The Teacher’s Pet and The Matty Johns podcast.

The two media organisations will also co-produce content, following their success with the Police Tapes series launched in March.

“We are proud to be working in the podcast space with News Corp Australia, who share our ambitions for growth in the podcast sector and who also believe in the power of audio to amplify their market leading content,” says Nova CEO Cathy O’Connor.

The deal means Acast, which Nova has partnered with since 2017, has access to podcasts from publishers such as the BBC, the Financial Times and News Corp Australia.
