Just days later he welcomed his 3000th guest since the show began: award-winning author Tiona Brown. (Listen to the interview by clicking here.)
"It's amazing to see how the show has grown over the years," says Webb, 36. He began hosting Conversations LIVE in July 2003 first on WMPR 90.1 FM in Jackson, MS. Since then the show has been shared with a variety of affiliates, including Blogtalkradio.com and http://www.dcnowradio.com/.
Each month over 100k listeners tune in for discussions with news makers, entertainers, politicians and individuals who have a story to share. Webb believes this is what has made the show a cut above others on talk radio. "I don't just have people on for ratings," he says. "If I am going to talk with someone I want to make sure they actually have something to say."
