When I started in TV news, I was always told I had “the voice” for radio. I always took that as a not-so-subtle hint that I didn’t have the looks for on-air work, but TV-people – being as direct as they can be – were always clear to clarify that I was lucky to have options. Being on air using my voice alone meant I could age without worry – or looking like a TV news version of Jocelyn Wildenstein.
But I digress.
Both are the genius of Alan Levy, who uses both platforms to broadcast himself. The March 2010 issue of Talkers Magazine tells you the story of BTR and it’s founder. It’s a good read whether you like innovators and entrepreneurs – or aspire to be one. It’s a thoughtful look. You can download the PDF and take a read right here.
I highly recommend it.
And they say video killed the radio star. Ha!
