Why Is BlogTalkRadio Disruptive? Alan Levy Lays It Out in Forbes

If you’re still not convinced that BlogTalkRadio is the wave of the future, don’t take our word for it.

But do consider what our network’s CEO, Alan Levy, has to say on the matter – today in Forbes.com.

“There's no real competition,” says Alan (above).

“There's no real competition,” says Alan (above).

“We are creating a new medium that empowers people to create their own content . . . We believe this is a very compelling concept, and the growth of our company seems to bear that out,” Alan tells the biz bible, in an interview head- lined “Blogging On the Radio.”

“It would be very difficult for some- one to start a company that would compete against us. Our company is built on a phone network that we also own . . . This is a huge competitive advantage for us that would be hard for someone else to replicate,” he goes on to say, adding:

“There’s no way [terrestrial radio stations] can compete with us . . . Even if you assume the future of radio is in satellite radio . . . the very cost of satellite transmission is prohibitive.”
