Press Release – September 7th, 2021
Today, Meghan Trainor has announced her new podcast, Workin’ On It, that she will co-host alongside her brother and best friend, Ryan Trainor. The podcast will premiere on Wednesday, September 15th and will see the dynamic duo take on a new topic each week, share their stories, and bring listeners into the conversation. Co-produced by Cloud10 Media and iHeartMedia, the pair will tackle topics such as becoming a new mom, navigating Hollywood, mental health, and everything in between. Meghan, Ryan, and friends will speak their truth and leave no details behind.
“Ryan is one of my favorite humans ever. He always keeps me humble and real and I’m so grateful to have a brother/bestie like him,” Meghan says. “I hope that getting to share our stories will make people laugh with and at us.”
“I might be biased but I think that Meghan is the funniest person in the world.” Ryan says. “I can’t wait for everyone to realize that she’s not just ‘that Bass girl.’”
Workin’ On It will be available on iHeartRadio and all other major podcast streaming platforms — including Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts and more. This is one of many new endeavors for Meghan as she began 2021 by penning a deal with NBCUniversal Television and Streaming Entertainment for a cross-platform partnership. Coming this fall, fans will also get to watch her as the host of Top Chef Family Style on Peacock and as a judge on Clash of the Cover Bands on E!.
Workin’ On It is distributed by the iHeartPodcast Network.
