New York, NY (May 13, 2021)—Leading premium podcast studio, Cadence13, an Audacy company, today announced that it has partnered with award-winning actress Ellen Pompeo—the star of ABC’s long-running hit series Grey’s Anatomy—for her first-ever podcast, Tell Me with Ellen Pompeo.

Pompeo is repped by CAA, John Carrabino Management, and Hansen Jacobson.
