Spencer Brown and David Landau, the former co-CEOs of Dial Global/Westwood One, have partnered with VC Michael Rolnick to form DGital Media an audio engagement company that partners with media brands to create, distribute, and monetize spoken word audio products. The company’s first venture will be the creation of the Re/code Radio network in partnership with Re/code’s parent, Revere Digital LLC, which is being wholly acquired by Vox Media, in a deal announced yesterday.
Founded by noted technology journalists Walt Mossberg and Kara Swisher, Re/code is one of the nation’s leading independent tech news, reviews and analysis websites. Walt and Kara are also co-executive producers of the annual Code Conference, an exclusive gathering of technology and media leaders that is taking place this week in Southern California.
Announced at the Code Conference, the Re/code Radio network will feature a portfolio of programs starting with Re/code Decode hosted by Kara Swisher, which is slated to go live in June.
According to Lia Lorenzano Kennett, Chief Operating Officer of Revere Digital: “With the proliferation of mobile devices and the popularity of podcasts, we want to make sure our content is available to our audiences wherever they are – in the car, in the office, etc. By partnering with DG Media, Re/code will be able to leverage our authoritative content and brand with outstanding audio programming, distribution and monetization.”
