There are a few podcast directories that will offer the ability to showcase the hosts on a show (such as iHeartRadio). Those host can be configured inside Libsyn with all of their details so that those directories that support hosts can display the host information.
Important Note: This does not affect the Hosts and Guests section applied to some shows in Apple Podcasts. That is handled directly through Apple Podcasts and not through your podcast host at this time.
Host configurations can be found under Settings. Edit Show Host(s) is found along the left hand side.
Hit Add Show Host. A form to enter details for that particular host will appear.
Name: Enter the name of the host.
Profile: Enter a bio for the host. This should be short and sweet, with a max character count of 175.
Thumbnail: Upload an image, preferably square, of the host.
Website URL: If the host has their own website URL that they wish to promote, enter that URL here.
Facebook URL: If the host has their own Facebook page, group, or profile that they wish to promote, enter that URL here.
Twitter URL: If the host has their own Twitter channel that they wish to promote, enter that URL here.
Instagram URL: If the host has their own Instagram channel that they wish to promote, enter that URL here.
With the fields entered, hit Save to save your settings. A confirmation that the host has been saved will appear and the host will now be available to edit later. Additional hosts can also be added.
