Featured Host: The Cyber Dating Expert, Julie Spira


“I do what I love best every Saturday. Not only do I marry love and technology, but I help singles with dating advice. The program is about dating, love and romance in a Web 2.0 World.”  -Julie Spira

Julie Spira started her radio career as the first female announcer at the FM rock station WAAL in Binghamton, New York. Julie returned to her first passion of radio on Valentine’s Day, 2009 when she launched Ask the Cyber-Dating Expert Radio Show on BlogTalkRadio. As the bestselling author of “The Perils of Cyber-Dating: Confessions of a Hopeful Romantic Looking for Love Online,” she is passionate about helping singles find love and her BlogTalkRadio show helps her “share the love” with a growing number of listeners every week.

“Returning to radio and hosting the only online dating radio show is a dream come true. With my program, I interview bestselling relationship authors and online dating CEOs to help educate singles on the dating scene,” says Julie.

And, BlogTalkRadio is lucky to have her. Julie is a worldwide authority in online dating. Her dating advice has appeared on ABC, CBS, FOX, E!, KTLA, WPIX, New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Glamour, Woman’s Day, Men’s Health, Cosmo Radio, Huffington Post, Your Tango, JDate, Zoosk, eHarmony Advice, and Gen Connect TV.

In addition to her time at WAAL, Julie spent many years both on the air and in management at several syndication companies and at RKO Radio Networks. Julie also spent some time in the digital space at several technology and Internet companies, so she is no stranger to what it takes to survive in our Web 2.0 world.

It helps to have an advocate like Dave Mathison, host of BTR’s Be the Media, to cut through the fluff and give it to us straight.

David Mathison is a media consultant, entrepreneur, author, publisher and speaker who has lectured internationally. On his show, Dave interviews successful people from all walks of life about how to increase revenue, build audience, and spread a message.

When asked about his most popular episode he said…

“That was a January 2010 interview with marketer/author/speaker Seth Godin and author Scott Stratten. It was a popular show because both guests gave great, insightful tips on how to spread ideas and messages virally.”
