ABC NEWS ANNOUNCES ‘THE INVESTIGATION,’ A NEW PODCAST ON SPECIAL COUNSEL ROBERT MUELLER’S INVESTIGATION INTO RUSSIAN INTERFERENCE IN
THE 2016 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION
On Tuesday, Feb. 12, ABC Radio will launch a new podcast, “The Investigation.” Hosted by ABC News Correspondent Kyra Phillips and the ABC News investigative team, led by Senior Executive Producer Chris Vlasto, “The Investigation” will provide a weekly, behind-the-scenes look at Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. The free podcast will focus on the lead up to the highly anticipated report from the special counsel and explore its aftermath, analyzing the potential fallout and political consequences.
“We believe ‘The Investigation’ will provide listeners with valuable information,” says Jonathan Greenberger, ABC News vice president and Washington bureau chief. “Through conversation, analysis, exclusive reporting and newsmaker interviews, our team of journalists will closely follow all the latest developments and keep listeners informed every step of the way.”
“We’ve provided extensive coverage of the Mueller probe on our daily podcast ‘Start Here,’ but there’s so much more that Kyra Phillips and our investigative team can provide, that launching a dedicated podcast made spectacular sense,” says Steve Jones, vice president and general manager, ABC Radio. “‘The Investigation’ will break news, offer context and make our growing ABC Radio podcast network even more attractive for advertisers hoping to reach an informed and engaged audience.”
“The Investigation” joins the ABC News roster of political podcasts including “Powerhouse Politics” and “FiveThirtyEight Politics,” available to subscribe to for free. ABC News’ most recent podcast, “The Dropout,” is No. 1 on the Apple Podcasts charts.
