Hurrdat has some exciting news to share!

This summer, Parkville Media, a local podcast production company based in Omaha, NE, joined the Hurrdat brand. We’re thrilled about this addition to our company and the digital media services it will provide our clients.

“We’ve been working for years to create a one-stop shop with everything a business could need to market its brand online, and podcasting is another really valuable piece of the puzzle,” said Bill Hipsher, President of Hurrdat. “Hurrdat is unmatched when it comes to bundling media, marketing, and entertainment services. There’s not another agency with all of the combined capabilities that we offer brands and businesses.”

Parkville Media was founded in 2018 by broadcasting veterans Pat Safford and Jill Thomas, who were the hosts of one of the most popular morning radio shows in the Omaha area for more than 15 years. Together, Safford and Thomas used their media experience to launch Parkville Media after seeing an opportunity in the local market for a podcasting company that could help individuals and brands start new podcast ventures.

Now operating under Hurrdat Media, Safford and Thomas will continue to offer the podcasting services that made Parkville Media successful, including podcast hosting, podcast production, podcast advertising, studio space rentals, and consultation services. They will also lead the Hurrdat Media Network, which includes more than 30 local and national podcast shows, with several more joining the network in the coming months.

“This unforeseen, unplanned, and yet perfectly timed endeavor was all brought about by an amazing series of synchronicities,” Thomas said. “We’re so grateful the visions aligned and the timing was right to join this incredible Hurrdat team!”

“It’s so exciting to be part of a team that’s so creative, forward-thinking, and fired up,” Safford added. “With Hurrdat Media, we now have all the tools to build something like no other group in this country has built.”
