Washington Post Gives a Nod to the Citizen Broadcast Network

Today, Washington Post columnist Howard Kurtz has written a piece about BlogTalkRadio that makes us proud.

In his column Media Notes, Kurtz explains how “With BlogTalkRadio, the Commentary Universe Expands.”

The article talks about the story behind our Citizen Broadcast Network, how some “unlikely stars have been born,” and BlogTalkRadio’s emergence as a tool for more empowering and interactive experiences online.

CEO Alan Levy says:

Its great that BlogTalkRadio is recognized by the number one media critic in the country, Howard Kurtz, as “a populist force in cyberspace.” This validates BlogTalkRadio as a powerful online medium that is a true Citizen Broadcast Network. As I said in the article, my Dad would be proud.

Starting from the ground up, an empty network with no hosts, to our current impressive lineup of content, Kurtz observes that in addition to bloggers, “some better-known people are also gravitating toward the outlet.”

We want to take this opportunity to thank the many hosts and listeners who have brought their enthusiasm, energy, and discussions to our community.
