Cleveland, OH, September 22, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The hosts of independently produced radio programs have much to say and are seldom heard. The terrestrial airwaves are reserved for a select few making it very difficult for these valuable shows and topics to get distribution. The Speak Up Talk Radio Network offers radio with a purpose: a forum and a talk radio community that has the space for these talented people, with either terrestrial or online shows, to come together, speak up, and air their shows.
Patricia Rullo, a syndicated radio host and consultant for Millennium Star Publishing, the company behind the new network explains, “There is so much amazing content out there that never gets heard. It’s tiring to listen to the same repetitive shows and topics day after day. Nothing’s fresh anymore.” When asked by the publishing company to create a model for the station, Rullo responded, “Despite the many opportunities for people to tune in to my shows, often my listeners request earlier or later times or different days of the week. It’s not easy to accommodate thousands of people with different lifestyles and schedules. The first improvement is to create a listening model that allows listeners to control their listening experience. Next, let’s give these seldom heard radio host voices a place to repurpose their existing shows or podcasts. After all, the work’s been done. Why leave money on the table? Pull your existing files out of the archives and send them to us.”
The station’s model offers the benefits of live streaming combined with on demand and does away with time-slots and specific air times as a way to attract and retain more listeners.
· Hosts send their current audio file – a way to repurpose existing content
· The show plays every day 24/7 in rotation with other quality programs
· Listeners have the option to enjoy the current show on the player or select a specific show on demand and can listen over and over again
Rullo adds, “We also use the power of our terrestrial radio and TV station affiliates nationwide to drive listeners to this online radio network. Hosts appreciate being mentioned on these additional outlets and listeners enjoy the 'round the clock' flexibility. That’s why we chose the slogan – Always On For You.”
The small hosting fee funds the organization’s pillowcase project, Sewport Our Troops, where handmade pillowcases are sent to military combat support hospitals, homeless veteran shelters, and most recently to women’s shelters. Rullo concludes, “When we speak up about topics that fuel our passion, we empower listeners to do the same. This is a project designed to improve the lives of others and leave a legacy of positivity. It’s a project designed to benefit everyone involved.”
