Linda Yaccarino, Laura Correnti Launch ‘Sunday Supper’ Podcast In Partnership With iHeartMedia
Today, NBCUniversal Chairman of Global Advertising & Partnerships Linda Yaccarino and Giant Spoon Partner Laura Correnti announced the launch of their new podcast, Sunday Supper, in partnership with iHeartMedia. Yaccarino and Correnti will welcome listeners to the dinner table — alongside some of the biggest names in entertainment and business — for open conversations over open bottles of wine.
And, NBCU says, “while they’re breaking bread, they’ll be breaking legacy. Each week, Yaccarino and Correnti will turn Sunday dinner into a space where icons and influencers can let their guard down and reminisce about the moments they broke from tradition and blazed a trail for themselves. With warmth, sweetness, and a healthy dose of spice, this podcast will invite leaders to dish and listeners to enjoy never-before-told stories, advice, and ideas for the future of media—with two of the industry’s best as their guides.”
“In my house and even my office — the best days end—and the most genuine conversations start—around the dinner table,” Yaccarino said. “I’m so excited to bring all the laughter, conversations, and tough questions of an Italian home to Sunday Supper, and make our guests — and our listeners — part of the family, too.”
Correnti added: “Linda and I have worked at the intersection of media, marketing, business and culture for decades. And yet we’ve also always operated far beyond the traditional lanes of our industry. This podcast is an opportunity to explore the connections that can take creativity, business, and technology to the next level. We’re excited to pass the meatballs, remove the formalities, and learn from some true visionaries.”
Conal Byrne, CEO of iHeartMedia Digital Audio Group, said: “Podcasting has quickly established itself as one of the most genuine, effective ways for humans to do something that is critical to all of us: have a real conversation. And, as two powerhouse forces in the world of media and creativity, Linda and Laura have a credibility and authenticity that is second to none. The medium is perfect for them. And the Sunday Supper podcast is the perfect idea for it. As the largest podcast network in the country, iHeartMedia can’t wait to swing our full, mass-reach marketing and sales support behind it.”
The podcast will be distributed through the iHeartPodcast Network and available on iHeartRadio and all major podcast platforms later this fall, with episodes airing every Sunday.
