Podcast Advertising

The AGBC News podcast is accepting standard live-read ads, produced radio spots, and custom business profiles to educate listeners about your products.

The AGBC News podcast recounts stories from the history of New York City, explains current news and how it impacts New Yorkers, explores fun facts about the city, and promotes upcoming concerts and events. We have long served as a trusted local news source and we aim to carry that trust into the under-served area of podcasts focused on NYC.

Read more below about the opportunities available and email contact@agreatbigcity.com to begin developing the perfect promotion for your product, brand, or service!

We give first consideration to New York-based businesses so that promotions will be relevant to our local audience.


Monthly Podcast Ads

Standard podcast ads run monthly and include a short "Sponsored by" mention of each advertiser at the beginning of the episode and a longer message during a commercial break in the first third of the episode.

Advertisers may choose one of the formats below:

  • 📰 Live Reads are read by the podcast host and are based on a short script or an outline of important topics provided by the advertiser.
  • 🏢 Business Profiles are a combination of interview and advertisement. An AGBC producer will visit your business to interview you and small portions of audio from that interview will be used to create multiple ads that will air during your promotional period. This audio production will not cost extra, but is only available to advertisers purchasing a promotion of three or more months.
  • 🎙️ Produced Radio Spots are pre-recorded and may feature music and multiple voice actors, similar to ads on commercial radio. Currently these must be pre-produced by the advertiser or an ad agency, but it is an attractive option for companies with a previous history of running radio promotions.

Banner Ads

We offer banner advertising that displays across all pages of the site and will appear at the top of the page or in the sidebar next to the content depending on the size of the images provided by the advertiser. Banners ads should follow IAB standards for leaderboard, rectangle, or 1:1 ratio square ads so that they will properly display on both desktop and mobile website layouts.

Our basic level of banner ads are randomly during each page view to equally display every active ad. If you would prefer to purchase a guaranteed share-of-voice, please contact us.

This simplified setup helps us maintain a lower price and gives advertisers an easy way to reach local customers interested in your business!
