Angela Rye is launching a new weekly podcast called “On 1 with A. Rye.”
The podcast will focus on politics and current events, through the lens of pop culture, and will start up on Wednesday, July 12, with an episode featuring Congresswoman Maxine Waters.
“I heard a lot of feedback from viewers and followers asking for a platform where they could keep the conversation going beyond a commercial break or 140 characters,” Rye said. “On 1 will give me the opportunity to engage with people from every corner of the country, and allow us to honestly address the pressing political, racial, and pop culture questions of the day together.”
Rye become particularly popular during the 2016 presidential election cycle, during which her frank news reporting style and her dry humor really started to shine. She was also often the only woman of color represented at the commentary tables at CNN and NPR.
The new podcast will be available on iTunes, TIDAL, SoundCloud, and Spotify. In the meantime, you can listen to a trailer for the podcast here.
