 Podcast Will Be First In a Series of Podcasts Set to Launch This Year

New York, NY Spectrum News NY1 (NY1) today announced the debut of "Off Topic on Politics: The NY1 Political Podcast," the first in a new series of podcasts offered by the network. "Off Topic on Politics: The NY1 Political Podcast," focusing on the most pressing political topics of the week in New York City and across New York State, is set to premiere on August 3 at 6:00 AM.

"Off Topic on Politics: The NY1 Political Podcast," hosted by City Hall and Political Reporter Grace Rauh, will feature regular contributors, Statehouse Reporter Zack Fink and Noticias NY1 Host of "Pura Politica" Juan Manuel Benitez. A collaboration between the network’s digital and political units, the podcast will navigate an array of conversations, including analysis of trending political topics and thoughtful observations about New York City. From City Hall to the Capitol, no topic will be off limits.

“We are excited for the launch of our first-ever political podcast for New Yorkers on the go,” said Alison Hellman, Group Vice President of Marketing for Spectrum Networks. “Our political experts will deliver essential information to commuters about what’s happening throughout New York and provide NY1 fans an additional touchpoint through which to interact with our journalists. We’re particularly excited for the opportunity to engage new viewers with content tailored to a host of platforms.”

In the fall, NY1 will grow its lineup with the launch of two additional podcasts that will feature "Mornings on 1" Anchor Pat Kiernan and "Inside City Hall" Political Host Errol Louis. The podcasts will take separate approaches, with the former providing a daily dose of information that enables easy living throughout the five boroughs and the latter offering thought-provoking interviews with key stakeholders from around New York City and New York State.

"Off Topic on Politics: The NY1 Political Podcast" will be available for download on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher and Google Play.
