"I honestly can’t say enough about how proud we are seeing how far the podcast has come," commented PokerNews' Head of Content Matthew Parvis. "It seems like just yesterday that we began preliminary discussions about producing a quality poker podcast that could become a staple amongst poker enthusiasts. It was a tricky time to start something with great podcasts like The Circuit, The Poker Beat, and the other PokerRoad shows not being able to survive what was a tough time in the industry. I hope we can continue to serve the poker community by informing, educating, and entertaining our audience about not only the poker world, but all that the iGaming has to offer. The best is certainly yet to come."
Since the first-ever episode on Nov. 5, 2010, the iBus Media Network, championed by the PokerNews Podcast, has come a very long way. Over four years have passed and hundreds of episodes have been recorded, but we would be remiss to not first and foremost thank our audience. Without all of you, our growth could never have been realized, and everyone in the PokerNews family truly appreciates you.
"Over the past four years, the PokerNews Podcast has come a very long way," said Podcast Producer Rich Ryan. "I am humbled that so many people tune in each week to listen to us banter about the world of poker, and I can't thank our fans enough for propelling us to where we are today."
As it currently stands, the iBus Media Network consists of the PokerNews Podcast, the PokerNews GPI Update, and the newest addition, the Remko Report.
"It is truly an honor to be named as one of the most popular podcasts of the entire year by Podbean," said Editor-in-Chief Donnie Peters. "I'd personally like to thank all of our loyal listeners from around the world and everyone that has had a hand in helping to produce the shows week in and week out. This wouldn't have been possible without you, and we look forward to bigger and better things in 2015."
The iBus Media Network of shows is nearing three million total plays and has included top guests such as Daniel Negreanu, Jason Mercier, Nolan Dalla, Ty Stewart, Jason Somerville, Greg Merson, Antonio Esfandiari, Phil Hellmuth, and many more. We also had a very special guest appearance from Los Angeles Lakers owner, the late Jerry Buss.
