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 !

Automakers Increase In-Vehicle Internet Radio Capabilities to Meet Consumer Demand

Friday, August 16th, 2013

Remember the days when cassette players posed a threat to terrestrial radio? How about when CDs replaced cassette players as your go-to device for cruising in your car? Well the past four years have seen a particular intangible service present itself as a threat to all other forms of mobile media- Internet radio.

Arbitron Study Graph

More and more people are connecting their phones to their car radios and streaming audio in favor of listening to CDs or AM/FM radio. According to an Arbitron Inc. and Edison Research study, 2013 saw Internet radio streaming reach an all-time high, with 21% of cell phone users choosing streaming as their option for entertainment purposes while in their cars. Automobile companies have recognized this trend and are implementing plans to increase production focused on adding Internet  radio apps to car dashboard audio systems.

What do you think of the idea? How do you listen to audio in the car? Let us know is the ‘comments’ section below!

Music to Take Center Stage on Special ‘All In Our Family’ Podcast

Friday, July 26th, 2013

The upcoming All In Our Family podcast is something of a departure from the show’s usual theme. Normally tackling topics regarding family issues and obstacles, this week’s airing focuses on music and its effect on popular culture and listeners. Soul singer FiL Straughan and Jobie Thomas of R&B band Enchantment and are the show’s special featured guests.

FiL Straughan is a US/UK soul singer whose career took off after deciding to leave his desk job in favor of music. With his voice drawing comparisons to that of the late Luther Vandross, Straughan has garnered just as much critical acclaim for his song covers as his original work. A former employee in the investment banking arena, he will share his feelings on touring and the genre of love ballads on All In Our Family.

Jobie Thomas is one of the members of R&B legends Enchantment. The group, best known for their hits “Sunshine” and “Gloria“, the latter of which was performed on Soul Train, has seen many of their singles achieve notable accomplishments on the Billboard charts. An avid supporter of the arts, Thomas will discuss Enchantment’s generation-spanning music, his love of audience participation, and his ties to The Temptations.

Tune in Saturday at 8PM and 2PM as host Yolanda Robinson welcomes Straughan and Thomas as they discuss their views on the deep history of music, the entertainment industry, and their hopes for R&B. For those of you who can’t get enough of All In Our Family, a very special re-airing of this podcast will take place on Tuesday at 1PM, only on Talktainmentradio.com- Radio, the way it should be heard!

The Unstoppable Rise of Online Radio

Tuesday, July 2nd, 2013

For years, traditional radio has reigned as the ultimate means of entertainment for audiences. However in the past decade, that reign has been challenged by the emergence of online radio. As more and more consumers flock to smartphones (almost half of all Americans are currently using the devices), their expectations for a product that ‘does it all’ has translated to a major boost in online radio traffic.

The convenience that comes with the coupling of a smartphone and online radio has proven to be a major selling point for the product. Portability and data plans allow users to take their devices anywhere and stay connected to the Internet at all times; even in their cars. Another advantage to online radio is the complete a la carte system. Listeners get to choose to listen to what they want, when they want it, with little to no commercial interruptions.

It is an exciting time to be on the side of cutting-edge technology. We here at Talktainmentradio.com are happy to be a part of an medium that continues its meteoric ascent. Click here to see a schedule the shows you can listen to only on Talktainmentradio.com, Radio-The way it should be heard!

Art and the Workplace: A Beautiful Combination

Thursday, May 16th, 2013

Each week you get to know us through our shows and blogs, but have you ever wondered what things are like behind the scenes at Talktainmentradio.com? Well wonder no more, because today we’re giving you a little peek at some recent additions to the building. Not only do we get to work in a newly remodeled office, we are now surrounded by cool and imaginative paintings!

We here at Talktainmentradio.com are major advocates for the creative arts. In addition to being fun to look at, art has emotional benefits and has been proven to have a positive influence on the workplace. Our appreciation for beautiful work is so great that we recently purchased some pieces to go along with our new office! We worked with Columbus-based vendor Black Art Plus to be able to obtain the paintings and could not wait to show you what we acquired! Check out some of the art below!

TTR Artwork

A few pieces of the artwork that we have in the building.

Placed throughout all three stories of the building, we believe the stunning paintings add a touch of flair and elegance to the space, don’t you think?
