I was particularly honored this year at the greatest gathering of minds in the talk media industry to be invited to introduce the Master of Ceremonies himself, the professor emeritus of the talk industry today, the publisher of TALKERS magazine, Michael Harrison and the Executive Vice President of Cumulus Media, John Dickey for the session called “The Fireside Chat.”

I had the great honor of not only attending TALKERS at the Steve Allen Theater in Hollywood, but also to introduce a panel title, “Radio – The Big Picture Part 2”. Here are a few pictures of my time visiting with some greats!
Talkers wrote a very nice commentary on my show, The Ethan Bearman Show, the interview and where I am headed in the talk radio industry.
From Talkers:Dynamic Coast-to-Coast Conversation. The power of issues-oriented talk radio and its unlimited positioning options were amply demonstrated this weekend as two fresh-on-the-scene mavericks hooked up on the phone and showed that there can be more to this medium than predictable partisan polarization. Shown at left,GCN syndicated weekend talent Ethan Bearman, a relative newcomer to the field located in his Northern California studio yesterday, interviewing Jonathan Miller (right) in the Washington, DC offices of No Labels. Miller, a former two-term Kentucky State Treasurer, is co-founder of the DC-based, bi-partisan political organization dedicated to finding common ground between today’s political extremes. Their slogan is, “Stop fighting, start fixing.” Bearman, described recently by TALKERS publisher Michael Harrison as “the Colin Kaepernick of young talk show hosts,” positions his independent brand of politics as “left, right and forward.” His program airs live on Sundays from 4:00 pm to 6:00 pm PT. The industry should take note.
