The paranormal is being explored in an entirely new way in Beyond the Darkness. Norman Pattiz is the founder of PodcastOne which has become the biggest podcast network in America. Chris Jericho’s network will feature the program which challenges everything about spooky creatures like ghosts, ghouls, aliens and demons.
Tim Dennis and Dave Schrader are hosting the show and it will expand the Jericho Network with the popular subject of the paranormal. Chris is excited but admittedly a bit creeped out by Beyond the Darkness. Tim and Dave are the leaders of paranormal broadcasts and their fan base is extensive. The new program should draw an incredibly large audience and scare them in all of the right ways. This new nightmare may be a dream in disguise.
PodcastOne is the largest podcast network supported by their advertisers. Norman Pattiz is the founder and is well known as the radio giant of Westwood One.
Well over 200 podcasts are run on the network including Neil Strauss, Heather and Terry Dubrow, Adam Carolla, Laura Ingraham, Barstool Sports, Shaquille O’Neal, Jay Mohr, Gabrielle Reece, Steve Austin, Dr. Drew, Rich Eisen, Malcolm McDowell, Dan Patrick, Chris Jericho, Penn Jillette, TheCHIVE, Chris Webber, the Forbes, Ross Mathews and Eddie Trunk.
According to Bloomberg, Norman Pattiz was responsible for the founding of both Westwood One and PodcastOne. His experience in the syndication of radio spans well over forty years and he is know for providing quality programming in entertainment, traffic, news, sports and talk shows. Westwood One has the distinction of either distributing, owning or managing the Mutual Broadcasting System, The Super Bowl, CBS News, NCAA Basketball, CNN radio, March Madness, NFL Football and the Summer and Winter Olympics. They also host a wide variety of talk and music programming.
Courtside Entertainment Group was founded by Pattiz in 2010 with the purpose of launching programming that was high in quality. This was followed by his launching of PodcastOne in 2012. President Clinton appointed him in 2000 and again in 2002 to be on the broadcasting board for the United States. The board was responsible for looking after all United States broadcasting except military.
Pattiz launched an Arabic television and radio service as well as a Farsi language broadcast and reached over 40 million people. These broadcasts were heard by 22 countries throughout the Middle East as well as in Iran. Pattiz was eventually inducted into the Radio Hall of Fame in 2009.
