Benzinga, a fintech media company providing actionable news and data insights to retail traders, is launching “Benzinga Show Business with Phil Hall,” a weekly podcast that offers an insider’s view on the issues, trends and personalities that shape the business side of the entertainment world.
Phil Hall brings more than three decades of entertainment industry experience to the podcast. In his careers as a journalist, publicist, film critic, film festival organizer, concert producer, talk show and podcast host/producer, book author, playwright and horror movie actor (winner of the B-Movie Film Festival’s Best Supporting Actor Award for Bikini Bloodbath Car Wash). Phil Hall has been well acquainted with all aspects of show business. With this series, he will be joined by prominent figures and thought leaders in film, music, publishing, broadcasting, social media, event marketing to analyze how the entertainment world is evolving.
“Contrary to the old song that says there’s no business like show business, it is easy to forget that show business is very much a business,” says Phil Hall. “My job on ‘Benzinga Show Business’ is two-fold: giving the listener an insider’s perspective on the state of the multiple segments within the entertainment world while offering a podcast that is engaging, invigorating and, yes, very entertaining.”
“Benzinga Show Business” is part of the company’s Benzinga: The Stock Market Place initiative, which aims to deliver all things stock market related in fast, easy to understand and easy to act on deliverables.
“We have a duty to make information easier to consume to the 50 million-plus people depending on Benzinga content every month,” said Jason Raznick, founder and CEO of Benzinga. “And what better person than Phil Hall is there to serve up our new show business presentation?”
New episodes of “Benzinga Show Business” will be available on Fridays at 12:00 PM ET and will be found on Benzinga Podcasts, Apple, Spotify and all major podcast platforms.
