Tuesday evenings at Talktainmentradio.com are all about getting personal. Gett’n Down to Earth, Creative Connections, and Real Talk are shows that encourage audiences to get comfortable, call in, and share their stories and insights on a vast array of topics. Led by love and life gurus Earth Jallow, Tomiqua Perry, and Nikki Ransom, the lineup allows each host to showcase her own style and unique personality. To get to know them better, we sat down and asked them a few questions to learn more about their experiences and their shows. Want to know more about the ladies of the Tuesday primetime lineup? Read on!
Why don’t you each tell us about a little about yourself…
Nikki: I’m a married mother of four children and two bonus children. I’m a Certified Master Sex Expert and Sex Coach and owner of Naughty Angels LLC, where we provide sexual education and enhancement products. I’m an author also appearing in a collection of erotic tales with New York Times bestselling author Karrine Steffans. My main passion in life is to educate people about sex, what sex was really meant to be for us, and how to have amazing relationships.
Earth: I started off marketing and pushing other people and their product or brand. I enjoyed being behind the scenes and making others look good. I had the opportunity to do marketing and personal assisting to some celebrities, which allowed me direct access to their professional knowledge. I studied under international motivational speaker Les Brown, and gained invaluable music industry knowledge and contacts through Erykah Badu, Talib Kwali, and a few others.
I bumped into Khari Enaharo in early 2000 after doing some shows on WVKO and an internet radio show, and he said I had a radio voice. He later had me on his show, “Straight Talk Live”, as a guest and there bloomed my media broadcast career.
Tomiqua: I am a 33 year old event planner, promoter, emcee and general advocate for the underground arts and entertainment scene. My first love was, and still is, written word. I started my creative journey by way of poetry and jewelry design.
What is your show about?
Earth: Gett’n Down to Earth is about LIFE. The things that go on within our families, with women, children, education, politics, and music. My show is community oriented, yet nationally targeted.
Tomiqua: Creative Connections is a platform for artists and entertainers in Columbus to promote projects, events, concerts, and entrepreneurial ventures. Weekly topics pertain to current issues and developments relating to creativity and life issues.
Nikki: Real Talk is all about being your best when it comes to love, relationships, and sex.
How do you feel being a woman in the radio industry, which is a predominantly male arena?
Earth: I don’t care about that.
Nikki: I enjoy it. I haven’t noticed any downsides to being in a predominantly male industry.
Tomiqua: I love it!! I have always had a special energy with the male species. Often I am underestimated because of being a woman and being short; that is, until I open my mouth and then it is quickly apparent that I am educated and well-versed in most topics pertaining to creativity. Being the minority motivates me.
Is there any advice that you have for those who aspire to follow in your footsteps?
Tomiqua: Work hard, persevere, manifest and make adversity your driving force. Walk in your path and purpose with a genuine heart and you will succeed.
Nikki: Do not compromise on your vision and go for your dreams no matter who tells you it won’t work or tries to knock you down.
Earth: Don’t follow in my steps…create YOUR own!
Be sure to tune in Tuesdays at 5 PM, 6 PM, and 7 PM EST to listen to Gett’n Down to Earth, Creative Connections, and Real Talk!
