Webby-Award-Winning Podcast’s First Episode of 2022 on Miriam Carey is Now Live
NEW YORK, NY – January 10, 2022 – CUMULUS MEDIA and DCP Entertainment today announce the second season line-up for DCP’s award-winning podcast Say Their Name on the Cumulus Podcast Network. The series focuses on the stories of Black individuals who were assaulted and killed by police and in ‘Stand Your Ground’ states, with an emphasis on the women who often get overlooked. The first episode in the series, now live, marks the one-year anniversary of the attack on the United States Capitol with a look back at Miriam Carey. With her infant in the car, Miriam was killed in 2013 by the same law enforcement departments that allowed rioters into the Capitol last January.
Subsequent episodes of Say Their Name will drop each Monday and will be available at Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Stitcher, TuneIn, Pocket Casts, Google Podcasts, Amazon Music, and Pandora, among other platforms. Cumulus Podcast Network distributes, markets, and monetizes DCP podcasts.
