Lead Host and creator of the Radio Show, Brett King, said of the news:

"We've been the #1 Fintech podcast globally since we started, and we were the first global Fintech podcast to launch way back in 2013. It's rewarding to see sustained audience growth month after month and year after year, to the point where now we are the No. 1 Business Show on Voice America. When we started streaming with Voice America three and a half years ago, it was unimaginable that a dedicated Fintech radio show and podcast would be their leading business show, but here we are. I want to thank our hosts Ron Shevlin, JP Nicols, Sam Maule, Elizabeth Lumley, and Rob Findlay for their stellar contributions, along with our regular contributors Chris Skinner, Dave Birch, Ian Kar, Michael J Casey, Bailey Reutzel, and Jessica Ellerm for their incredible work this year. And I would like to thank our producer, Rachel Morrissey for her leadership and dedication." - Brett King, Host and Creator of Breaking Banks

Rachel Morrissey, Executive Producer of Breaking Banks was grateful and bullish on the shows continued growth opportunities

"September 2016 saw our biggest monthly increase in listeners in our 3-year history. It is clear that Breaking Banks and our new spin off podcasts like Fintech 5, have a ton of potential room for further growth. Three years ago if you said Fintech, people had no idea what you meant; now it is on the front pages of most newspapers. My only aim is to keep pushing for great content and great guests, so the quality of the show continues to meet the audience's expectations." - Rachel Morrissey, Executive Producer, Breaking Banks
