The Salem Podcast Network continues to bolster its roster of talent. In a release, the company announced the addition of former Georgia Republican Congressman Doug Collins to its lineup. 

The Doug Collins Podcast debuts on Oct. 25. Salem’s latest move comes nine months after its launch which featured Charlie Kirk and Dinesh D’Souza, the network later added Todd Starnes and Trish Regan 

“For years, I was so impressed with Doug Collins as a Congressman,” said Salem Senior Vice President of Spoken Word, Phil Boyce. “When we had the opportunity to bring him over to the Salem Podcast Network, we moved fast.”

Collins, a former U.S. Air Force chaplain, remains an active member of the Air Force Reserve. He also authored a book on the impeachment of former President Donald Trump that is scheduled to be released next month.

SPN was ranked the #12 podcast network in America in August by Triton Digital based on average weekly downloads. The network is averaging more than 13 million downloads per month.

“He (Collins) will be a great addition to our lineup and will help us save the country we all love,” added Boyce.

As the CNN presidential debate approaches, many digital creators are making plans to utilize the content for their own purposes. They will have an ally in Elon Musk.

Tim Pool, who features more than a million subscribers on YouTube, has shared plans to showcase his commentary alongside the debate Thursday evening when a CNN spokesperson informed him that would not be allowed.

“We are not granting digital entities the right to stream the debate on their own YouTube channels,” a CNN spokesperson told Pool, according to the Post Millennial. “I hope that helps.”

After being informed that his content plans would not be sufficient enough to avoid a DMCA takedown strike from YouTube, Pool asked X owner Elon Musk about whether or not the social media platform would be operating in similar fashion.

Musk shared that he would defend creators on the app.

“The public has a right to see Presidential debates however they would like,” Musk said. “DMCA does not apply.”

According to CNN, it believes “debates are exclusive to CNN and may not be streamed or streamed with verbal or digital commentary on any platform or social media site by another party, other than the embeddable YouTube player via the CNN YouTube channel.”

However, Musk’s response to Pool appears to show he will not abide by those parameters put in place by the network.

X, the social media platform owned by Elon Musk, has announced plans to require a premium subscription to stream live video on the app.

“Starting soon, only Premium subscribers will be able to live stream (create live video streams) on X,” the company shared. “This includes going live from an encoder with X integration. Upgrade to Premium to continue going live.” 

The timing of the implementation of the new policy was unclear. However, should the platform choose to put that policy in place, it would be the first social media app to require such a subscription.

Currently, X offers premium subscriptions for as low as $3 per month for the basic package. The premium tier costs $8, while Premium+ will cost users $16 per month.

Benztown is announcing plans for a webinar featuring Dr. Ed Cohen and Mike McVay centered around utilizing data to increase listening credits in the Nielsen radio ratings.

Unlocking Radio Secrets: Every Minute Matters; Improving Your Ratings will be held on Thursday, June 27th at 1 PM ET. In the webinar, Benztown will showcase its SpotGPS tool for radio programmers.

“In today’s radio environment where every quarter-hour matters, there are quarter-hours hidden everywhere. Some radio stations know where they are and how to take advantage of them. Knowing where they are illuminates an otherwise dark room,” the company said of the webinar. “Some radio stations accept the darkness and blame ratings methodology. The smart ones live in the light.”
