We noted a while back that Chris Jericho was working on his own network for PodcastOne, who currently hosts his "Talk Is Jericho" podcast. The following was issued on Wednesday, announcing The Jericho Network:
CHARLES "KONNAN" ASHENOFF: FIRST JERICHO NETWORK PODCAST ON PODCASTONE
Los Angeles – June 29, 2016 – PodcastOne, the nation's largest advertiser-supported podcast network, has entered into a multi-faceted agreement with podcast host Chris Jericho for production, distribution and product marketing for the newly created The Jericho Network.
Jericho, also an actor, author and frontman for the band Fozzy, presents multi-talented Latino Lucha Libre legend Charles Ashenoff, known to wrestling fans worldwide as Konnan, as the first host to debut on the network. Future podcasts will take full advantage of Jericho's involvement and interest in wrestling, music, paranormal activity and pop-culture in general.
All podcasts on The Jericho Network will be available exclusively at PodcastOne.com, the PodcastOne app and iTunes.
"I'm stoked to bring some of the most talented, interesting and hilariously ridiculous hosts to PodcastOne via The Jericho Network!" said Jericho. "My overall plan is for TJN to be an extension of the diverse array of subjects and guests I already feature on Talk Is Jericho twice a week. Get ready to be amazed, amused and entertained by ALL of the hosts and programs that will be added to TJN over the upcoming months...and don't forget to wear a helmet!"
PodcastOne Founder and Executive Chairman Norm Pattiz said, "Chris' podcasts continue to be among the most successful on PodcastOne's lineup. There are a lot more things that we can do together, and the Jericho network will give us the vehicle and time necessary with which to do that."
