Airwave podcast network has partnered with publisher BenBella Books to launch its own book imprint, Airwave Books, which will feature books by Airwave’s podcast and video content creators.

Airwave Books will acquire works of nonfiction in categories including history, business, science, wellness, finance, investigative journalism, entertainment, arts, and edutainment. The partnership allows the parties to develop book projects based on Airwave’s existing content, as well as original works. Airwave Books will be distributed by Penguin Random House.

Ben Mathis, Head of Content and Partnerships for Airwave, says “Our content creators are natural storytellers, and we are excited to help them expand their voice to print and audiobooks. BenBella shares our passion for content that makes us better, smarter people, and they bring unparalleled experience, editorial support, and marketing power to Airwave Books.”

“We’re excited to expand our reach through this partnership with Airwave! We love so many shows on their roster and look forward to bringing more exciting books into the world,” says Glenn Yeffeth, founder of BenBella Books.
