Digital powerhouse GMA News and Public Affairs continues to create innovative and engaging content online as it launches its first original podcast The Howie Severino Podcast on April 8.
Bannered by multi-awarded broadcast journalist Howie Severino, the weekly podcast features insightful conversations with personalities from various fields and industries.
Severino, who also serves as GMA Network’s Vice President for Professional Development, is one of the hosts of top-notch documentary program I-Witness. He is also one of the first bloggers on the network’s online platforms and has previously led GMA News Online as its Editor-in-Chief.
“My colleagues and I developed this idea of creating a podcast as a safe space for sharing insights with leaders and interesting people across diverse backgrounds,” shares Severino. “I have been a journalist for 33 years but podcasting is fresh territory for me,” he adds.
Asked how The Howie Severino Podcast differs from his shows on TV and digital space, Severino notes that this will be “pure conversation, no visuals,” where podcast enthusiasts can expect “wide-ranging discussions, where both guests and host bring many years of experience, eclectic interests, and quirky thinking to bear on timely topics.”
“It will hopefully be something edifying to listen to while driving, cooking, gardening, or doing the laundry,” he says.
For its pilot episode, Severino had his fellow GMA News pillar and award-winning broadcast journalist Jessica Soho as the first salvo in a stellar lineup of guests.
Soho shares her journey in the broadcast industry—from her humble beginnings as a GMA News staff to becoming a reporter and now the country’s most-awarded broadcast journalist.
The Howie Severino Podcast is available for free on Spotify, Apple Podcasts, and other streaming platforms every Thursday.
