Is Radio Show Host a title you would like to have? Become a Host of your own Show on TTR

Tuesday, April 1st, 2014

Speak you mind become a host

Seriously, have you ever thought about hosting your own radio show?  If it has ever crossed your mind; keep reading for an exciting opportunity at #Talktainmentradio to host your own radio show.

What kind of people should consider using radio to reach their audiences?  Doctors, lawyers, real estate agents, or financial advisors — use radio to highlight their knowledge, increase their name recognition, build up their local celebrity, and gain new clients.  It’s a great way to  promote books, seminars, or other sideline business; like a LIVE walking talking ad.

Others use radio to entertain or to promulgate a particular point of view — political, religious, or otherwise their own idea. This non-commercial type of show is often supported by advertising. Hosts can even make their radio show into a business of its own, buying time slots for a fixed price, and selling ads themselves directly to businesses. A brand new revenue stream to support your cause and platform.

OK, let’s give you a few things to think about while you are thinking this thing over.

Checklist for pondering becoming the host of your own radio show:

___  Do you have a business or service to provide?

___  Do you have a message with a mission you want to share?

___  What topics would you want to discuss on your show?

A few examples:

  • Interviews with recent news-makers or local politicians
  • News, especially very recent events
  • Controversial issues (the economy, crime, global warming, education, etc.)
  • Interviews with book authors (who need publicity)
  • Recent articles from the newspaper, magazines, or online publications
  • Business/Finance/Legal
  • Celebrity News
  • Recent events in TV shows or movies
  • Ridiculous things that really happened
  • Music
  • Relationships
  • Health and fitness advice
  • Contests with listeners

___  Is this going to be a full-time, part-time, or hobby for you?

___  Do you like to research different subjects?

___  If you could interview anybody who would it be?

___  Who would be your support for getting it going?

___  When would you like to get started?

While I know many things are dancing in your head right now about all of the possibilities; let’s start you out with the application process by giving you more details.

Give us a call and explore the idea of having your own radio show that’s heard locally and can be promoted world wide.   #ShopLocal #BeGlobal !

Give Back This Thanksgiving

Friday, November 15th, 2013

This Thanksgiving before you cut your turkey and watch all of the Thanksgiving parades, take a moment to make someone’s holiday a special one. Here is a list of places you can volunteer this Thanksgiving.

Put the “Thanks” Back into Thanksgiving This Season

Prepare Thanksgiving dinner with Community Kitchen Inc. on Monday, November 25 through Wednesday, November 27 from 1pm-2:30pm. The Community Kitchen needs help preparing turkeys and other items for their Thanksgiving meal for the homeless and others in need. There are 25 spots available for those who are interested. To register and get further details, email Marilyn Oberting at

If that time doesn’t work for your schedule, LifeCare Alliance also needs help preparing Thanksgiving dinner on Monday, November 25 from 5:30pm-7:30pm. This is in partnership with Columbus Gives Back and will serve area senior through LifeCare Alliance’s Meals on Wheels program. Register online for the event or email the email event coordinator, Caroline at

Besa Community will be hosting an early Thanksgiving dinner for homeless youth on Wednesday, November 27 from 5pm-7pm. This will not be your traditional Thanksgiving dinner. Coordinators are asking volunteers to bring one dish – fruit, salad, desserts, etc. The main dish will be provided by Mikey’s Late Night Slice. Check out Besa Community and sign-up to volunteer at this nontraditional Thanksgiving dinner.

If you’re anything like me, cooking anything is just not in the cards. Instead, do something active and volunteer, run, or walk at the annual 5 mile Chase Thanksgiving Day Turkey Trot presented by Whole Foods and Ultra Fit USA. This is a family event that takes place Thanksgiving morning benefiting children with autism. Register online for this event as a volunteer, runner, or walker.

Thanksgiving is not only a time to enjoy family and great food. It is the perfect time to reflect on how fortunate we all are to have a place to go for a hot meal and live in good health. Know of any other ways to give back this Thanksgiving? Comment and let us know!

2013 Pride Wrap-Up Special – Part 2

Friday, August 9th, 2013

If you’ve been paying attention to the news, you are aware that this summer has seen many milestone events occur for the LGBTQ community. The Supreme Court struck down the Defense of Marriage Act and dismissed a suit from supporters of California’s Proposition 8 gay marriage ban. Needless to say, 2013 has been a monumental year for social movements!

When attended the 2013 Stonewall Columbus Pride Festival in June, little did we know that such change was on the horizon.  Though verdicts for both cases were still looming, that didn’t stop the crowd of more than 300,000 people from coming together to celebrate the power of unity.  Check out what people said when we asked what Pride meant to them in the second half of a two-part video of our coverage for the festival!

As supporters of diversity and inclusion, we were honored to meet so many great members of the community. If you liked this video, check out some bonus footage of our interview with Days of Our Lives Emmy Winner, Chandler Massey!

Columbus Black Theatre Festival Attracts Statewide Attention

Tuesday, July 30th, 2013

The month of July marked the kick-off to the first Columbus Black Theatre Festival. Held the second weekend of the month, the festival was a three day event that featured poetry readings, acting and directing workshops, and the premiere of ‘Secrets of a Dark Skin Sister’ by Julie Whitney Scott. Scott is the founder of Mine4God Productions, the company behind the creation of the festival, and is the host of The Satin Hour on

Seeing a void in the African-American theatre community, Scott decided to take matters into her own hands and develop a festival that celebrates diversity within the creative arts scene in central Ohio. Calling on all regional artists and playwrights of color, she created an event to resemble similar successful functions that took place in Washington D.C. and Atlanta.

Attendees were treated to one of the festival’s main plays, ‘Secrets of a Dark Skin Sister’. ‘Secrets’ follows two African-American sisters as they struggle to deal with how their lives are affected due to, despite being twins, the stark contrast of their skin color. The play goes on to explore what controls the African-American mindset and questions why skin color seems to be a bigger issue within this particular race than it is in others.

The festival came to a close Sunday with an awards ceremony at’s headquarters, where the top three artists were recognized. The results are as follows:

1st place: “Zoe’s Boutique” by Sanika Harris – Atlanta, Georgia

2nd place: “The Inconvenient Truth” by Tisha Harris – Cincinnati, Ohio

3rd place: “Mamas’ Drama” by Nanette Marie – Columbus, Ohio

Harris, Harris, and Marie accept their awards with Julie Whitney Scott (Center) and Managing General Partner, Charles McCrimmon (Back-Center), and friends.

The Can’t-Miss Social Events of the Summer – Part 2

Monday, July 29th, 2013

There has been so much going on in Columbus this summer that we had to write two segments just to cover it all (and we’ve barely even scratched the surface)! This is a good thing, though, as it stands as a testament to just how much there is to do in central Ohio. So let’s dig in, shall we? Read on to find out about some of the best events going on this summer.

Ohio State Fair – July 24 -August 4

Attracting more than 840,000 people in 2012, the Ohio State Fair is recognized as one of the largest state fairs in the United States. This should come as no surprise considering how much there is to do during the two week-long event. Petting zoos, science exhibits, and music performances are just a few activities that await guests beyond the entrance gates. Besides, now that they’re back, where else can you go to satisfy your deep fried Twinkie cravings? The Ohio State Fair is going on now, so stop by and check it out before it ends on August 4!

Columbus Wine Festival, Presented By Giant Eagle – August 9, 10

If recent studies have taught event coordinators anything, it is that if there is wine, the people will come. Drinking over an astonishing 3.7 billion bottles of wine in the year 2011, the U.S. population continues its reign as the world’s largest consumers of wine.  Clearly, the people behind the Columbus Wine Festival have been paying attention because the event, to be held at Franklin Park Conservatory, is expected to be one of the most attended functions of the year.

Festival Latino – August 10,11

Held at Genoa Park, Festival Latino takes place on the west bank of the Scioto River in downtown Columbus. Originally starting out as a five-hour event in 1996, Festival Latino has evolved into the largest Latin American event in Ohio. Thousands flock to the festival to experience Latin American culture through food, art, and music.

2013 Columbus Food Truck Festival – August 16, 17

Recent years have seen Columbus emerge as a food truck hub of sorts. Demand for the mobile eateries has proven to be so strong that this particular line of business is considered a formidable competitor to sit-down restaurants. That demand has led to the 2013 Columbus Food Truck Festival. Taking place at the Columbus Commons, attendees can expect to be treated to live music as they peruse through more than 40 food and beverage trucks. They say variety is the spice of life, so you can’t go wrong here if you’re looking to treat your taste buds to something new!

Farmers’ Festival – August 17

August 17 marks the 22nd anniversary of the North Market’s Farmers’ Festival. Using the peak growing season as a means to draw attention to locally-grown produce, the Farmer’s Festival serves as a shining example of the North Market’s efforts to support and drive local business. Live music, cooking demonstrations, and children’s activities make this outing fun for the entire family!

So there you have it! Which festivals are you looking forward to this summer? Are there any events that you feel should have made the cut? Let us know in the ‘comments’ section below!
