The Kelces, whose podcast launched in September 2022 and covers football as well as pop culture and their own lives, accepted the award via video and thanked their fan base – the 92 percenters – as well as Taylor Swift fans, given that Travis is dating the pop star.

“Listen, this is an incredible honor, especially for two jabronis like us, to receive an award like this is beyond humbling and we would be remiss if we didn’t immediately thank all of the 92 percenters out there — aka Swifties — who voted for us to win this award,” Jason said.

“Thank you guys for everything. We truly do have the best fanbase in the entire world,” Travis said.

In the Icon Awards categories, which honor groundbreaking contributions to the industry, Wrongful Conviction hosts Maggie Freleng and Jason Flom received the Social Impact Icon Award. Jonathan Goldstein, host of the Heavyweight podcast, received the 2024 Pioneer Icon Award.

The podcast Rotten Mango received the Innovator Award presented by YouTube.
