Conversations LIVE Joins DC Now Radio Family In Washington D. C.
"It's great to see the hard work and professionalism we try to bring to the airwaves reap these rewards," says Cyrus Webb, creator and host of Conversations LIVE. The radio show debuted on WMPR 90.1 FM in Jackson, MS in July 2003 and has since become of the popular places for individuals of all walks of life to come and share their stories with the world and showcase what is possible. Webb was approached by DC Now Radio station president Anthony Tilghman about the partnership in late April 2012 and jumped at the opportunity to reach a new audience.
Tilghman, who is also a sought-after celebrity photographer has been on Conversations LIVE several times, and he knew when he began DC Now Radio that he wanted to bring the show to his audience. "I believe in the work that Cyrus is doing with Conversations LIVE," Tilghman explains. "It's obvious that he takes what he does seriously, and that is exactly what I wanted for DC Now."
The first show from Conversations LIVE to debut on DC Now Radio was with American Idol winner and platinum-selling recording artist Taylor Hicks. The response was overwhelming. Since then guests like actors Charley Koontz, Abby Miller and recording artists like Karyn White, David M and Angela Spivey have been on the station, and Webb says this is just the beginning. "I see this new partnership as a way for Conversations LIVE to really grow and raise the bar for talk radio," he explains. "The best is yet to come."
