Democratic Talk Radio format change

06.15.12

We have finally begun the process for changing the Democratic Talk Radio format.

We are taking down certain sections of our website…. program archives, articles and the message board. The first two listed have already been taken down.

New text will soon go up on our front page announcing our upcoming format change and change in legal structure.

We are moving from a show to a brand of shows. We are moving from commerical radio to college and NPR type radio stations. We will no longer be a “for profit” entity probably next month.

We are looking for both new college radio talk show hosts and new stations willing to carry our programs. It is our intention to create unique new shows for each station. Our experienced DTR hosts will be working with new people as we begin this process. We hope to create and train an entire new generation of progressive talk show hosts moving forward.

Democratic Talk Radio ceased being a politically partisan “Democratic” radio show a couple of years ago but it does still have a point of view. We will be talking about “democratic government and democratic economic issues.” The small “d” in democratic is significant.

Our show will be putting together a new national Democratic Talk Radio Advisory Board. We will be asking a few key individuals to serve. If you think you can help raise the needed funding to make the changes we are in the process of undertaking, we would certainly consider placing you on our national Advisory Board. If you have special technical skills in radio, IT, organizational development, legal, non-profit management or public relations, we might be able to place you on the Advisory Board.

Please contact Stephen Scott Crockett by email at CollegeDTR@aol.com or phone at 443-907-2367 if interested in getting involved with the new Democratic Talk Radio.

Sincerely,

Stephen Crockett
