CrimeCon Day 1: Podcasts, crowds and death

NEW ORLEANS — Hundreds of true crime aficionados descended on New Orleans Friday for the opening day of CrimeCon, an annual convention highlighting scandalous or underreported crimes and the people who shed light on them.

The convention started at noon with attendees flooding into Podcast Row. Podcasters from popular shows such as Oxygen’s Martinis Murder and regional podcasts such as Southern Fried True Crime met with fans and took selfies in front of their booths. 

But one of the booths on Podcast Row was for a show that isn’t out yet. 

Tegna (WWL-TV’s parent company) is planning to launch True Crime Chronicles on June 24. The podcast digs into the archives of Tegna stations around the country (including WWL, Tegna owns 49 TV stations in 41 areas) and talks with the people involved, from reporters to witnesses and prosecutors. 

Jessica Noll, a podcast host and producer, was covering cold cases in Georgia when

‘On the precipice of being a real business’: NBCU’s Oxygen wants to make money from podcasts

NBCUniversal’s Oxygen Media has been in the podcasting business for two years, but this is the year that the cable network hopes that business becomes a real source of revenue.

Since its debut in January 2017, episodes of Oxygen’s flagship podcast, “Martinis Murder” — a weekly talk show focused on true crime stories — have been downloaded more than 8 million times, according to Lisa Hsia, evp of digital for Bravo, Oxygen and Universal Kids Media. However, with the exception of one-off series tied to its TV programming, “Martinis Murder” remains Oxygen’s sole regular podcast show because the company is still waiting to see whether podcasting can generate meaningful revenue before it looks to add more shows and enter the podcast network business, Hsia said.

7 True Crime Podcasts You Should Listen to Right Away

2017 was the year of the binge-worthy true crime podcast, but fear not: reporters, investigators and regular folks everywhere are still dishing dirt on the darker side of humanity. Whether you’re into serial murders or small-town kidnappings, these seven podcasts are just the ticket.

1.  “Atlanta Monster”

The 1980 disappearance of Darron Glass from his foster home caused a media circus. What’s more disturbing: he was one of over two dozen young black children who were never seen alive again. Eventually, a suspect was arrested, tried and convicted, but the mystery was far from solved. Is Wayne Williams, an intelligent freelance photographer who is still in prison, guilty or innocent? In “Atlanta Monster,” the producers of “HowStuffWorks” and “Up and Vanished” expose the hidden truths behind one of Atlanta’s darkest secrets. “Up and Vanished”’s Payne Lindsey also hosts “Atlanta Monster,” his signature probing questions and friendly

7 Of The Most Addicting True Crime Podcasts From 2017

While “Serial” certainly helped put true crime podcasts on the map, it isn’t the only chilling and addicting series in the genre. Whether you’re looking to immerse yourself in a cold case or keep up with the details of a high-profile murder, you won’t be able to stop yourself from binging on these investigations.

Here are seven of the best true crime podcasts from 2017:

1. “Dirty John”

In the Los Angeles Times’ “Dirty John,” host and reporter Christopher Goffard serializes the nightmarish relationship between interior designer Debra Newell and her husband John Meehan, a seemingly perfect doctor who slowly entangles Debra and her family into a “complex web of love, deception, forgiveness, denial and survival.” The unsettling, six-part narrative will make you question the lengths we go to for the ones we love.

From the producers of “Serial,” “S-Town” follows host and producer Brian Reed as he investigates the
