WNYC will end its podcast Nancy when the latest season is finished in June.

The podcast, which focuses on stories and conversations about the queer experience, started in 2017 but could not sustain itself, WNYC Chief Content Officer Andrew Golis said in an internal announcement shared with Current.

“The show has had an incredible team behind it and has a loyal core community,” Golis said. “Unfortunately, we haven’t been able to maintain or grow the show’s audience, or get it on a path to be sustainable.”

The show’s hosts, Kathy Tu and Tobin Low, and sound designer Jeremy S. Bloom will continue at WNYC in new roles with Radiolab, Golis said. Tu and Low were winners of WNYC’s podcast accelerator contest in 2015. 

Three contributors, B.A. Parker, Zakiya Gibbons and Sarah Geis, were working on temporary contracts that will not be renewed at the end of June, according to a WNYC spokesperson.

“We are so proud of the work we did on this show,” Tu and Low said in a tweet Friday. “The stories that we’ve gotten to share with you over the last three years have meant the world to us. And above all else, the love you have shown us has been unbelievable.”

The final episode will be released June 29.

Update: This article has been updated to include Geis among the contributors.
