Here are City Cast’s current offerings:

Headphones

Host-read podcast advertisements 

A City Cast host will perform your advertisement, either as a pre-roll (up to 30 seconds) or mid-roll (up to 60 seconds). The host can perform it as written, or you can provide talking points and the host can put the ad in their own words. (For a lower rate, a City Cast producer will perform your advertisement, or you can provide us with your own creative.)

Podcast Sponsored Content

A unique City Cast offering. A City Cast staffer will interview someone from your organization about whatever you want to talk about. This interview will run as a segment within the City Cast podcast, for up to five minutes.  It will be labeled as being sponsored by you, but it will feel like the rest of the podcast. This interview will offer you the opportunity to present your message at greater length and in the same format as the podcast, giving listeners the chance to connect with you in a way they couldn’t get from other forms of advertising and marketing. You can also reuse this interview yourself for your own marketing outside of City Cast. We can also pull out soundbites from the interview to create audiograms for your social channels. 

Newsletter

Newsletter advertisement

An item will be included in the daily City Cast newsletter, up to 80 words. It can include a bold headline, a colored text box, and stylized type treatment. It will be labeled as: “From our sponsor, Your Company.” For a small extra fee, we can write the text using your talking points. 

Full newsletter sponsorship

You’ll be the marquee sponsor of the newsletter for a week or more, with your name or logo in our header: “City Cast, Sponsored by Your Company.” You’ll also receive an item in the body of the newsletter, up to 80 words. It can include a bold headline, a colored text box, and stylized type treatment. For a small extra fee, we can write the text using your talking points.
