Cyrus Webb Announces the Formation of the Conversations Media Group
Since 2003 Shadow Play Entertainment, the entertainment and promotional entity of C. A. Webb, Inc., has been the home of the Conversations Brand which includes a radio show, book clubs and magazines. Over the years hundreds of thousands around the world have benefited from the brand, and because of its reach and continual growth it has become necessary for a change.
"Conversations has really developed its own identity," says Webb, 36. "With all of the new projects we have coming through the pipeline, I knew it was time to create an entity that could meet the needs of the brand. Conversations Media Group will do just that."
Effective Friday, May 4, 2012, Conversations Media Group is the new home of Conversations LIVE Radio, Conversations Book Club, Conversations Magazine, Conversations With Music Magazine, Conversations Model Citizens Magazine and the new web show Conversation Pieces.
