BlogTalkRadio Is ‘A Great Place to Develop Talent,’ Says Phil Boyce, Talk Radio Network’s President of Programming

After all, in the past year alone we’ve seen our own Rodney Perry get snatched up by Mo’Nique as co-host of her red-hot BET show; we’ve seen VH1 cast our own Tionna Smalls opposite Rozonda “Chilli” Thomas in What Chilli Wants; and we’ve seen our own Kevin Ross partner with Byron Allen‘s Entertainment Studios on the recently-launched America’s Court with Judge Ross.

And for the past two years, as president of programming and syndication for Talk Radio Network, he’s been even busier developing new and coaching top talent. Among TRN’s roster of A-list hosts are Michael Savage, Laura Ingraham, Mancow Muller and Jerry Doyle.
