New York’s WNYC announced a partnership Wednesday to produce a new radio show and podcast with The New Yorker.

The weekly hourlong show, yet to be named, will be “built around The New Yorker’s award-winning writers, artists, and editors,” according to a press release.

Dean Cappello, WNYC’s chief content officer, is working with David Remnick, editor of the New Yorker, to develop the show.

The New Yorker and public radio have had a very long and rewarding relationship over the years, and we’re so pleased to expand upon that by collaborating with WNYC, one of the premier radio producers in the country,” Remnick said in a press release.

Audible has signed on to sponsor the show.

The news comes ahead of the first-ever podcast upfront in New York City Wednesday evening, where NPR, WNYC and WBEZ will pitch podcasts to media buyers. Follow us on Twitter for news from the event.
