Fredcast wins Social Media award

The FredCast Cycling Podcast was awarded the People’s Choice Award at Friday night’s Utah Social Media Awards, billed as the first social media award scheme in the world.

In awarding the People’s Choice Award to David Bernstein, the host, creator and producer of The Fredcast, the show’s master of ceremonies said that out of more than 200 nominations, The FredCast had received the largest percentage of public votes.

The judges called The FredCast “the cream of the crop,” and commented that The FredCast “profoundly influences the cycling community.”

In his acceptance speech, Bernstein said: "I am honoured and humbled by this award and by the casting of the public votes.”

He told the audience why his show was named The FredCast.

“Freds are men and women like me. We love riding our bikes, watching professional cycling, buying new bikes, clothes and gadgets for cycling. We aren’t always going to be the first to finish a race or get to the top of a hill, but we’re always going to look good doing it.”

The FredCast Cycling Podcast, now in its fifth year of production, is the highest ranked cycling-related podcast on iTunes and is consistently ranked in the Top 100 of all sports podcasts.

Earlier this year Bernstein hosted the official InterbikeTV ‘Live From The Show’ video showcases, highlighting more than 60 exhibitors and products. Bernstein also hosts the Spokesman podcast, a bike industry roundtable discussion staged fortnightly.
