  • The NAB Show, due to take place in Las Vegas NV in mid October, has been cancelled for a second year, after a number of major exhibitors pulled out. Citing the ongoing pandemic, NAB’s EVP of Events Chris Brown said: “It has become apparent in the face of these challenges that we can no longer effectively host NAB Show in person”. The exhibition was to have a podcasting section, and attracted 91,000 people in 2019.

    • A pro-AV equipment show InfoComm is still scheduled in Orlando FL for Oct 23-29; in Las Vegas, CES is still scheduled for Jan 5-8; and Radiodays Europe in Lisbon, Portugal - the most vaccinated country in the world - is between Oct 9-11.
  • First look: Nielsen has just released their Podcasting Today Report. It says that almost half of US monthly podcast listeners are “light users”, listening less than once a week: they are the segment fueling continued audience growth. It also says that comedy is the top podcast genre for almost every age group, apart from people aged 55+, who prefer news. The report is free to download.

  • Samsung Free Listen, the mobile phone company’s podcast app, is to expand from the US to launch in Germany, the UK, France, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland from the end of October.
