HLN will debut a new original podcast on March 18 based off their upcoming Unmasking a Killer series. The Unmasking a Killer television series, which focuses on the hunt for the Golden State Killer, will also debut on March 18.
The podcast is not the series as a podcast (as many cable news podcasts are) and examines the newest theories and FBI evidence with exclusive guests. The podcast will be hosted by Joke Fincioen and Biagio Messina of Joke Productions and features interviews and content that did not fit into the series.
This is HLN’s first original podcast, but they also have S.E. Cupp Unfiltered and Crime & Justice with Ashleigh Banfield available in podcast form. TKNN has also learned that HLN will launch a podcast version of Forensic Files on March 18 as well. The Forensic Files podcast will be the television series in podcast form.
Cable news has been increasingly adopting podcasts as an additional medium. Fox News and CNN have several podcast-only shows while MSNBC only has their television shows available in podcast format.
