The New BlogTalkRadio: All You Need to Know


Early this morning, we released a new user-interface (UI) at We’ve been working hard behind-the-scenes to create a UI with enhanced functionality and user-friendly navigation to make your BlogTalkRadio experience even better, and we’re excited to share our new look and features with our community.

To help you get started, we’ve compiled this quick guide outlining the major changes you will see in and around BlogTalkRadio.

BlogTalkRadio Learning Center: In our new Learning Center, listeners and hosts alike will have a place to go to find comprehensive guides for everything you need to know about BlogTalkRadio. You’ll find the Learning Center in the ‘Help/FAQ’ section of our site. We’ve included new FAQ’s, BlogTalkRadio 101 with several screencast tutorials, tips for marketing your shows on Facebook, Twitter, and MySpace, and much more. If we haven’t covered a topic in our FAQ, please send us an email at Click here to go to our Learning Center.

The Forum: We welcome you to join our new forum by going to the ‘Forum’ link on our site. In our forum, you can interact with other listeners, hosts, and BlogTalkRadio staff to learn how to market your show, increase your listeners, and expand your Internet radio voice. You can access the forum by clicking here.

New terminology: Instead of Host Profiles, Segments and Stations, we now use Show, Episodes, and Branded Networks. We can relate it to the television show Friends. Friends is the show (determined by your Show Page), it airs on NBC (Your Branded Network or BlogTalkRadio as a whole) and every week, it produced an Episode (The One Where Ross and Rachel Hosted a BlogTalkRadio Show).

Introducing My BlogTalkRadio:
When you login to your BlogTalkRadio account, you’ll notice a new area called ‘My BlogTalkRadio’ located in the top left hand corner of any page on the site. Clicking this link will take you to the ‘My BlogTalkRadio’ portal where you will find everything you need to navigate your account in one central place.
