Black Enterprise Points to Alan Roger Currie as a Shining Example of Online Success

More and more, the mainstream media is giving BlogTalkRadio hosts their props. And we couldn’t more proud!

Seven weeks ago, Wayne Today, the daily paper in his hometown of Wayne, N.J., profiled WZAP Internet Radio host Zachary Sang.

Now comes Alan Roger Currie, who makes his home in Gary, Ind. But this time, it’s not the local media that’s lauding our talent.

No, the host of the ever-popular Upfront & Straightforward with Alan Roger Currie gets his props from the national media.

To illustrate a feature titled “How Do I Get an Online Radio Show: Seven Steps to Creating a Successful Program,” the new issue of Black Enterprise singles out Alan—and Alan alone—as an example of someone who has created such a show.

“After releasing his book, Mode One: Let the Women Know What You’re REALLY Thinking, in 2006, Alan…says he received many invitations from both radio and television hosts to discuss his book. ‘But then, friends began to tell me, You should start your own radio show.’ So he did,” writes reporter David Hudson, adding:

Alan: Helping lead the BTR charge.

Alan: Helping lead the BlogTalkRadio charge.

“Currie says his live listenership is between 150 and 200 people. However, most people download his podcast-live, archived podcasts—he has ‘anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 archived podasts downloads per episode.'”

To read the full article, including the seven steps to success, sorry but you’ll have to pick up the October issues of Black Enterprise. (Though we will tell you that BlogTalkRadio does in fact figure into that formula.)
