Many television and media personalities have expanded into podcasts. The broadcasts can be downloaded and listened to whenever convenient. Typically the podcasts are free and paid for through sponsorship deals. Some popular figures, though, choose to charge for the service.
Fox News host Laura Ingraham is one of those personalities who charged for their podcast. In less than a year, though, the Conservative pundit stopped recording new shows. The people who subscribed to the service, though, are still subject to have their accounts auto-renewed.
Ingraham’s show was run through the PodcastOne service. The site boasts, “You loved her hugely successful radio show and now you can join Laura Ingraham three days a week as she covers politics, pop culture and media bias. And don’t worry—as always, she’ll still bring you hard-hitting guests and take your calls.”
For $49.95 per year, listeners were to have access to 3 new shows a week. The last new show was posted on September 30th of 2019. That broadcast featured an interview with former Speaker of the House, Newt Gingrich.
Despite the lack of new shows, new subscribers can still sign up via the PodcastOne site.
The podcast may not have lasted long, but Ingraham still managed to create controversy on one broadcast. In June, she said of reparations, “As Trump always says, ‘You don’t get do-overs.’ No do-overs, that’s it. There was an argument, sometime—I think it was the 1980s. There was a quote, you won, we lost, that’s that. Describing world politics, we won, you lost, that’s that. That’s just the way it is.”
