“I do what I love best every Saturday. Not only do I marry love and technology, but I help singles with dating advice. The program is about dating, love and romance in a Web 2.0 World.”  -Julie Spira

Julie Spira started her radio career as the first female announcer at the FM rock station WAAL in Binghamton, New York. Julie returned to her first passion of radio on Valentine’s Day, 2009 when she launched Ask the Cyber-Dating Expert Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio. As the bestselling author of “The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online,” she is passionate about helping singles find love and her BlogTalkRadio show helps her “share the love” with a growing number of listeners every week.

“Returning to radio and hosting the only online dating radio show is a dream come true. With my program, I interview bestselling relationship authors and online dating CEOs to help educate singles on the dating scene,” says Julie.

And, BlogTalkRadio is lucky to have her. Julie is a worldwide authority in online dating. Her dating advice has appeared on ABC, CBS, FOX, E!, KTLA, WPIX, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Glamour, Woman’s Day, Men’s Health, Cosmo Radio, Huffington Post, Your Tango, JDate, Zoosk, eHarmony Advice, and Gen Connect TV.

In addition to her time at WAAL, Julie spent many years both on the air and in management at several syndication companies and at RKO Radio Networks.

BlogTalkRadio Feeding The Long Tail

Looking back at April 2008 shows us we’re still growing strong. In addition to all the conversations we’ve facilitated, we continue to add content to The Long Tail and provide a breadth and depth of content you’d be hard pressed to find housed on any other site. With over 70 categories and thousands of hosts, BlogTalkRadio is feeding the beast in record numbers. Take a look at these stats, for April:

  • 11,000 shows broadcast and archived
  • A total of 2.99 million listeners in April
  • 2,700 different hosts completed at least one show
  • 67,000 unique shows listened to in April
  • 87,000 unique shows in long tail

I find it interesting that 77% of the shows produced since we launched BlogTalkRadio were listened to at least one time in April.

Chris Anderson‘s Long Tail theory, for example, predicts that demand for products not available in traditional bricks and mortar stores is potentially as big as for those that are. Take a look at the graph from Anderson’s site below.

LongTail

The red part are the big hits, the top sellers. The orange part of the graph is the Long Tail, the niches, which the theory says is where the new growth is coming from now and will continue in the future. BlogTalkRadio and its hosts continue to add powerful, fresh content to those niche audiences. BlogTalkRadio is out to prove the Long Tail theory, that demand for content not available in your traditional media channels will be as big or bigger than what you can find on them. Our continued progress in this arena should be of interest to potential business partners and advertisers who want to capitalize on this growing demand for niche content – as well as our audiences who want that relevant information.

We’d love to hear from you; join the conversation.
