The Alberta Podcast Network is on a mission to help Alberta-based podcasters create podcasts of high quality and reach larger audiences, foster connections among Alberta-based podcasters and provide a powerful marketing opportunity for local businesses and organizations with funding from ATB Financial and support from CKUA Radio.
The official launch party for the Alberta Podcast Network, powered by ATB, is slated for September 27. They will have 20 podcast hosts in the house, and many great friends of the network and community partners to celebrate with. Both ATB and CKUA have generously donated door prizes, and they will have a little parting gifts for all of you, too.
If you can’t make it, but want to experience a bit of it, CKUA is planning to show the program on Facebook Live from about 7:35 p.m. to 8 p.m. You can also follow the fun on Instagram and Twitter on the hashtag #abpodparty.
