Just when we thought BlogTalkRadio couldn’t get any more star- studded, along comes wowOwow Talk, the new companion radio network to wowOwow.
Created, run and written by such media and showbiz powerhouses as Lesley Stahl, Liz Smith, Whoopi Goldberg, Candice Bergen, Lily Tomlin, Marlo Thomas, Peggy Noonan, Cynthia McFadden, Judith Martin and Joni Evans, this always witty, perpetually compelling website is a favorite among well-educated boomer women the world over.
“It means a lot to us that the largest number of people coming on to the Internet now are women like us—women who, to use a cliché, weren’t born yesterday, who are in their prime, who are involved in the world and have a bent for changing it as much as living in it,” they say. “Women who want a place to look at issues in a new way, or gossip a little, or learn more about each other, or ponder how to make the world better. Women who live varied lives, as we do.”
“Bringing those sensibilities to BTR was a natural,” said BlogTalkRadio Director of Programming Philip Recchia. “This week’s launch of The wOw Effect has given our network not only an unprecedented dose star power, but intelligence, class and wit as well.”
Hosted by wOw’s Julia Reed—also a Newsweek contributing editor—with help from Liz and Judith, the debut edition poses the question, “Tiger Woods and John Edwards: Really Bad Boys?” Plus, Washington Post political writer Dan Balz examines sexual goings-on in our nation’s capitol.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be hearing from even more of The Women on the Web and their newsmaker guests.
