We’re looking for the first 20 shows to premiere and promote directly to the industry. “There are a LOT of AMAZING podcast shows out there done by ALL hosts but when it comes to black hosts, shows they are often lost in a plethora of other podcasts and it’s a lot of work to find the shows that are of specific interest to African Americans.” stated Kevin Ross, COO of Radio Facts (www.radiofacts.com). “I’ve been trying to assemble a podcast site for six years even BEFORE the trend caught on because I saw the potential but I foolishly waited for others who did not see the vision, to come on board and time was waisted.” Ross went on to say.
Ross, a former radio DJ, Program Director and industry liaison hosts his own podcast, a series of vignettes called “Pennies from Kevin” where he gives advice to enhance the lives and experiences of listeners.
