The following data is derived from actual sales data across Libsyn Ads’ network of thousands of shows.

April 2024 Podcast Ad Rates

For April 2024, the average CPM rate was $21.75 for a 60-second ad spot. That figure is slightly lower than last month (March 2024 avg. CPM rate: $21.94), and the same month last year (April 2023 avg. CPM rate: $22.76).

The three highest CPM categories in March based on delivered advertising were:

  • Technology: $27
  • Education: $25
  • Comedy: $24

Moreover, three categories where advertisers can effectively tap into highly engaged audiences at more accessible CPM rates include Games, Kids & Family, and Religion & Spirituality, which averaged around the high teens to low 20s in April.

Historical data dating back to 2020 can be found on the Libsyn Ads site, along with a pricing calculator that allows you to estimate the spend for your next advertising campaign.
