Radio indie makes showbiz podcast with The Sun
Independent production company Wisebuddah is working with The Sun newspaper on a new celebrity podcast, hosted by Bizarre columnist Dan Wootton.
Bizarre Life is going to be a weekly podcast, which the paper promises will feature ‘world exclusive interviews from the world’s biggest stars’.
The first episode features One Direction singer Niall Horan, who reveals the reason behind his decision to walk away from X Factor mentor and record label boss Simon Cowell.
Dan, who is The Sun’s Associate Editor, says: “One of the best things about my job is the sometimes emotional, sometimes extraordinary and very often funny encounters I have interviewing the world’s biggest stars for my Bizarre column in The Sun. But until now you’ve never been able to hear what’s really gone on. That’s why I’ve decided to launch Bizarre Life – where each week we go in-depth with one of the world’s biggest stars.”
Clare Chadburn, Head of Development at Wisebuddah, told RadioToday: “Dan is such a fantastic personality and also a huge podcast fan. He really gets the personal nature of audio and the show will bring you closer than ever to your favourite celebrities. Alongside our work for traditional broadcast networks, Wisebuddah is building a strong reputation for producing high quality, high profile podcasts and we are thrilled to be working with Bizarre to produce this brand new show.”
The Sun is owned by News UK, which is also the parent company of talkSPORT and local radio operator Wireless Group.
