In essence, what blogs have done to newspapers, Blogtalkradio will do to radio. We empower bloggers, podcasters or novices to speak and interact with their audience in a real time manner and that conversation is broadcast live to an unlimited number of listeners and than archived with RSS subscription.
Rather than using expensive digital recording equipment, all of our hosts can use any type of phone to broadcast their show.We launched our service less than three months ago and we have more than 600 hosts, covering more than 30 genre’s originating from more than 25 countries.
The uses of this platform are truly endless. Consider the following examples:
