Talk Rumble, a longtime popular staple of the annual New Media Seminar, has been developed into a groundbreaking internet television show debuting this month on PodJockey.
Produced by Talk Ventures Productions in association with Talkers magazine and PodJockey, Talk Rumble is set to be a quarterly presentation featuring a lineup of eight or more guest talk show hosts from across the political spectrum engaging in a hard-hitting debate of the hottest topics.
The program, moderated by Talkers magazine founder Michael Harrison, is available to the viewing public at no charge supported by a limited number of advertising packages. Sponsors' commercial messages run adjacent to -- but outside -- the body of the one-hour program in the form of copy, graphics and links leaving the program itself commercial free.
The first installment of the new series was produced before a live audience in New York City this summer featuring (in alphabetical order) Thom Hartmann of Dial Global, Lionel of LionelMedia.com, Joe Madison of Sirius XM Satellite Radio, Steve Malzberg of WOR Radio Networks, Stephanie Miller of Dial Global, Rabbi Shmuley (Boteach) of WABCradio.com, Curtis Sliwa of WNYM (The Apple) in New York, and Martha Zoller of WXKT-FM in Gainesville, Georgia and the Georgia News Network.
Talk Rumble co-producer Ron Hartenbaum states, “The Talk Rumble is always one of the most exciting highlights of the New Media Seminar bringing together talk hosts from the left, right and in-between. What is so compelling about this program is that it teeters on the brink of chaos, yet never falls off the cliff. Michael Harrison masterfully keeps the personalities on a productive, intelligent plane while the program flows from topic to topic in a non-stop, fast-paced barrage of opinions and counter-opinions. It is now a high quality, five camera, state-of-the-art shoot that, unlike so many internet shows, is produced on the same level of quality as a major network property. We are very optimistic about the future of this highly ambitious pioneering experiment in internet talk programming!”
Talk Rumble host and co-producer Michael Harrison adds, “The aspect of this show that is so stimulating to me as a participant is that it is not afraid to bring together all legitimate points of view that are currently popular in today’s greater talk show arena – all on one stage, on one show. It doesn’t preach to any particular choir but rather caters to those who just like good intelligent news/talk debate. It also serves to promote talk media as a whole -- which is what Talkers magazine and I are all about.”
