New York, NY – March 29, 2019: Westwood One, America’s largest audio network, is expecting a new addition – the Mommies Tell All podcast! Hosted by The Bachelor’s Carly Waddell and Jade Roper, Mommies Tell All is an honest and hysterical take on women and motherhood. The show, formerly known as Babes and Babies, returns with new episodes and all new tell-all stories March 28th on the show’s new home, The Empow(h)er Network on Westwood One.
This popular podcast started as self-therapy for Carly and Jade, who appeared on The Bachelor, and met their husbands on Bachelor in Paradise. The two TV Moms found a large audience, and together they laugh, cry, and hot flash about every female topic from today’s pressing women’s issues to pregnancy sex and postpartum depression.
“I am so excited to bring Mommies Tell All to Westwood One,” says Carly Waddell. “The show is all about women — us as moms and wives, and no subject is off limits or taboo — from sex and love to everything in between. We both want to continue to empower women to dream big and make their dreams a reality,” adds Waddell who recently released her debut album of lullaby music, “Dream Train.”
“The reason we love podcasting so much is it provides a channel for us to connect with other women by sharing our truths. Being a mom is absolutely rewarding, but it can feel chaotic and sometimes lonely, and we want women to know they aren’t alone in their experiences and their feelings,” said Jade Roper. “We also want to celebrate and empower women because we are amazing! We are so excited to work with Westwood One and we feel we have found the perfect partner in them to spread our message.”
“Carly and Jade are true gems, with that rare combination of gorgeous and relatable and honest and inspiring, said Suzanne Grimes, EVP, Marketing for CUMULUS MEDIA and President, Westwood One. “We’re thrilled to showcase Mommies Tell All in our high profile Empow(h)er Network as we continue our commitment to celebrating and empowering women and moms everywhere.”
