BlogTalkRadio celebrates its third anniversary this month. And what better, more fitting way to mark the occasion than with an interview with President Barack Obama?
As TechCrunch and CNN reported yesterday, the president will appear on BlogTalkRadio this Wednesday, Aug. 19, at 5 p.m. ET. He will be discussing health-care reform as part of the “40 Days for Health Reform” campaign.
We are honored that the BlogTalkRadio platform has been selected to host this conversation as the debate on health-care reform reaches a fever pitch, and that the president is lending his voice to the dialogue.
Having embraced other popular platforms like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn during his campaign and into his administration, this event is yet another example of the president leveraging social media to communicate with the American people.
As I reflect on our three-year anniversary, I am struck by how far we have come from my kitchen table, where, in the early summer of 2006, I scribbled on a napkin notes for a concept that would become BlogTalkRadio.
And who knows, while listening in on the first part of Wednesday’s 40 Minutes for Health Reform special – as members of the “40 Days for Health Reform” coalition discuss the need to fix our nation’s health- care system – the president might be busy formulating a few responses of his own on a White House napkin.
We hope you’ll join us for this important discussion.
