Background and history

David Landau and Spencer Brown worked together as co-CEOs for Westwood One and in 2015 founded Cadence13 as DGital Media alongside venture capitalist Michael Rolnick.[8] In 2017, Entercom purchased a 45 percent stake in DGital Media for $9.7 million.[8]

In 2018, Cadence13 teamed up with the United Talent Agency to create Ramble, the "first podcast network devoted exclusively to online creators".[9]

In April 2019, Cadence13 announced that it would be starting C13Originals, under which the company would release several new podcast shows featuring unscripted audio stories.[1] The first C13Originals show released was Gangster Capitalism.[10][1] In July 2019, a partnership was announced between Cadence13 and Nielsen Holdings, with Cadence13 being one of the first few companies under the Nielsen Podcast Listener Buying Power Service.[11] On August 7, 2019, it was announced that broadcasting company Entercom had entered into an agreement with Cadence13 and Pineapple Street Media to acquire the companies.[12]

Cadence13 was named one of Fast Company's "World's Most Innovative Companies for 2019".[13]

In March 2020, Cadence13 announced that they would be launching a podcast with former presidential candidate Andrew Yang, titled Yang Speaks.[14]
