Premiere Networks and Bobby Bones, vice president/creative director of iHeartCountry and host of the national country radio program The Bobby Bones Show, announced today (April 6) the addition of The Biztape to Bones’ Nashville Podcast Network. The Biztape joins podcasts including The Bobbycast, Velvet’s Edge with Kelly Henderson, Good Company with Jake Owen and more on the Nashville Podcast Network.
Formerly known as That’s Showbiz Baby, The Biztape is a weekly podcast that provides insight into the business and technical side of both the music and media world with hosts Colin McKay and Joe Wasilewski. In each episode, they also provide their expertise, personal experiences, and conversations with other insiders.
“We searched for a long time to find a podcast that discussed the music business from the business side,” shares McKay and Wasilewski. “We wanted more advice and more depth than just ‘work hard.’ We decided to fill the void by creating The Biztape so we could get as nerdy as we always wanted to with it. Thankfully, with the help of Bobby Bones and the Nashville Podcast Network, we have the opportunity to continue that dream and we can’t wait to start creating with such a passionate and unique brand.”
As a young personality on the rise and with a background in double bass classical performance, McKay has focused his career on audio production and engineering. Today, apart from his time on the podcast, he works as a live entertainment and recording industry professional.
Based in Nashville as a content specialist, Wasilewski got his start as a touring photographer and videographer. In addition to The Biztapes, he also works with music clients of all genres and assists them in creating visual brands. Wasilewski also previously served as the music director for 88.3 WMTS in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.
“I’ve been a fan of Joe and Colin’s work for a long time and it’s been exciting to watch them grow their platform,” says Bones. “They have an interesting perspective from a different side of the business that people don’t usually get to hear from, and I’m pumped to welcome them to our Network.”
Executive produced by Bones, The Biztape debuts tomorrow (April 7) on the Nashville Podcast Network with weekly episodes available Wednesdays on iHeartRadio and everywhere podcasts are heard.
