New Channel on Men's Journal Captures Everything – Including Exclusive Clips – For Fans Of Maher’s Popular Podcast
Arena Group To Showcase Club Random Across Its Brands And More Than 100 Million Users
The ‘Club Random with Bill Maher’ podcast, one of the most popular podcasts in the world, announced today its new partnership with The Arena Group, a technology platform and media company home to such brands as Sports Illustrated, Parade, TheStreet, Men’s Fitness and more than 200 others. Through an exclusive licensing deal, the podcast will be featured on one of its core flagship lifestyle brands, Men’s Journal (MensJournal.com), and provide fans with new episodes every Sunday with exclusive behind-the-scenes clips not found anywhere else.
“We are excited for Bill Maher, one of the most defining voices of our generation, to bring ‘Club Random’ to The Arena Group Platform,” said Ross Levinsohn, Chairman and Chief Executive Officer of The Arena Group. “It aligns perfectly with Men's Journal, known for its insightful guidance on broad-ranging topics like health, politics, sports, cars, and travel. Men’s Journal also has a long-standing history of partnering with exceptional storytellers in adventure, culture, and entertainment, so we expect audiences will enjoy exploring thought-provoking topics with the dynamic personality of Bill Maher and his extraordinary guests.”
Featuring one-on-one, raw, and unfiltered conversations in a unique setting known as Club Random, Maher's podcast has generated over 105 million views on YouTube since its launch last year. ‘Club Random with Bill Maher’ is the brainchild of Bill Maher and veteran TV producers Chris Case and Chuck LaBella who began with Maher on the original Politically Incorrect.
The inaugural episode on the Men’s Journal Club Random Channel with famed actor, Jon Hamm, is streaming now. Future episodes will feature esteemed personalities such as Chuck Liddell, John McEnroe, Mike Tyson, Woody Harrelson, Rainn Wilson, Kenny G, Mayim Bialik, and more, with The Arena Group partnership expected to expand Maher’s popular podcast to new audiences with the same authentic format under his creative direction.
The acquisition of Men’s Journal, along with Men’s Fitness, Surfer, Powder, and Bike, created a fourth major vertical for The Arena Group in December of 2022; the company anticipates strong growth over the year.
