The Jericho Network is happily welcoming the new program “Beyond the Darkness” to its ranks. The show will be presented by Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis and will be insightful conversations with a diverse menagerie of guests who have personal experience with the paranormal and investigators of the supernatural. Points of discussion vary from simple neighborhood ghost stories to elaborate and strange alien encounters. Chris Jericho, the WWE star and proud leader of the Jericho Network, is excited to see this new concept and the new fans coming to his channel and allow it to evolve from its beginnings in wrestling. Norman Pattiz, Chairman of the company PodcastOne, informed the public in December 2016 that “Beyond the Darkness” will soon be available on the Jericho Network every Monday.
Norman Pattiz is a current Chairman with PodcastOne as well as the founder of the company. Already, PodcastOne and PodcastOne Sales are among the top in podcast marketing and sales, succeeding the line of profitable endeavors in Pattiz’ career. He began by founding Westwood One in 1974, America’s biggest radio network in broadcasting, then, while serving on the Broadcasting Board of Governors, the creation of Radio Sawa radio network, and finally by reaching the entirety of the Middle East with Alhurra Television. When he left Westwood One in 2010, he founded the Courtside Group and has also launched PodcastOne in June of last year.
Pattiz decided to enter the world of podcasting when Kit Gray, a Podcast Representative, helped Pattiz see the similarities between a podcast and a radio broadcast. Once that realization was made, he dived into his current venture and enjoys the new, yet similar, digital world of podcasting. He has discovered that the growth of PodcastOne has come from new ideas to stay fresh and alluring to consumers, who determine the success of a program almost instantaneously. This is very unlike his prior success in broadcasting, which came from the more technical aspects of the business and not completely on the content and consumers. The democracy of this new medium fascinates Pattiz and keeps him excited about his continuing legacy in the broadcasting and podcasting communities.
