ABC News has chosen VoloMedia to help monetize its podcasts. Nightline, World News with Charles Gibson, Good Morning America and other ABC News Programs will be a part of VoloMedia’s Business, News, and Politics Verticals.
VoloMedia is already working with MSNBC and FOX News inserting pre-roll advertisements for podcasts. TV networks are leading the way for monetized online video. According to a recent report by AccuStream iResearch, both audio and video podcasts are forecast to grow (total downloads) from 300% to 1,000% in 2009.
And this is where we remind you of our daily podcast: the Morning Media Menu, which can be heard live every weekday at 9amET or later in the morning posted on TVNewser.com, FishbowlNY.com and the mediabistro.com homepage.
