We’re live! Revolver Podcasts launches multicultural-targeted, bi-lingual audio on-demand network
Revolver Podcasts is building a community that inspires and empowers audiences to explore and pursue their passions. Its system enables people across the world to discover, share and create content: a perpetual generator of experiential, social, digital, mobile and traditional media platforms.
“Entertainment is changing! We live in a mobile, social, on-demand world. Our listeners can enjoy their favorite Spanish or English programs in their car, at work or anywhere their day takes them,” said Hobbs, President, Revolver Podcasts. “Our audio content network is home to the top TV, radio and digital stars, across all channels and within all content.

Building on the president’s experience in Hispanic broadcasting, Hobbs, who forged the podcast market in 2005, teamed up with Jeff Hinson and Javier Saralegui, all of whom are former Univision executives, to create a digital audio network connecting consumers with custom and unique content nationwide by merging data and creativity. The company is also working with partners to concept, co-develop, create and distribute data-inspired content across a wide range of topics including: news, music, sports, entertainment, lifestyle, health and fitness, automotive, finance, technology and many more.
