“Even though this is the 23rd time I've won Podcast of the Year, it never gets old,” said Adam Carolla on “The Adam Carolla Podcast” being named to iTunes Best of 2009 list for the first time.

As part of iTunes Rewind Awards, Carolla’s podcast, which has been downloaded more than 40 million times, has received their Best of 2009 #1 (Audio) Podcast Award. Suze Ormon's financial show took #1 in the Video Podcast category.

On the heels of this news, Carolla has announced plans to start an online broadcast network in February of next year. The Adam Carolla Entertainment Network, or A.C.E., will continue to broadcast "The Adam Carolla Podcast," as well as his automotive-oriented “Carcast.” The network will also feature new audio podcasts as well as video content.

Two of the new programs will be a home improvement show featuring Carolla, and a new program which will be a total 180 from testosterone-driven content. “The Parent Experiment” will feature Carolla’s wife Lynette Carolla and, former co-host of “The Adam Carolla Show,” Teresa Strasser (LAist Interview.)

When CBS Radio pulled the plug on Carolla’s syndicated radio show in February, he began podcasting the following week from his automobile warehouse in Glendale. The same space, where Carolla works on rebuilding and storing collectible cars, will be turned into a the A.C.E. offices and broadcast studios.
