New York, NY (January 21, 2021)—Cadence13, a leading premium podcast company that is part of Entercom’s Podcast Network, today announced a partnership with Punchbowl News—the news community focused on power, people and politics in Washington founded by leading political journalists and bestselling authors Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer and co-founded by veteran Capitol Hill reporter John Bresnahan—for The Daily Punch, a podcast hosted by Sherman and Palmer, the former co-authors of POLITICO’s Playbook.
Launched January 4, 2021—two days before the siege on the Capitol—Punchbowl News immediately became a must-read destination for breaking news and analysis on this unfolding, unprecedented crisis.
On The Daily Punch, Sherman and Palmer will bring their deep reporting skills and insight to the podcast space for the first time, reporting on the latest developments related to the storming of the Capitol, the incoming Biden-Harris administration, and the fallout from the final days of the Trump presidency.
Every weekday morning, Sherman and Palmer will bring listeners inside Capitol Hill, the White House and Washington for an unfiltered, non-partisan look at the key players and stakes of every major issue of the day and the news and events that move political markets. Sherman, Palmer, and guests will decode the forces driving politics and policy inside the nation’s capital, congressional leadership and the White House, and industries and companies trying to influence them.
The Daily Punch will launch on February 1, 2021 on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, RADIO.com and everywhere podcasts are available. New episodes will be available weekday mornings. Listen to the trailer and subscribe to the series here: https://link.chtbl.com/ddCK95hy.
“There’s no shortage of partisan platforms and news outlets that play to the emotions of the audience—The Daily Punch isn’t one of them,” said Jake Sherman and Anna Palmer, founders, Punchbowl News. “We’ll bring listeners an unfiltered look at the key players and the stakes of every major issues, and we’re thrilled to partner with Cadence13 for this key component of our new venture.”
