New Media Evolves to Radio

Mark Frauenfelder has a captive print and online audience most journalists would envy. But he’s not stopping there. He joins thousands of hosts and hundreds of thousands of listeners who have discovered BlogTalkRadio’s free talk show service when he appears tonight on The Alan Levy Show to discuss his upcoming book release. Levy is the founder and CEO of BlogTalkRadio. To call in to the show and speak with Alan or Mark, dial +1 (347) 677-0649. Listen live at 9 pm EST tonight or download the show from the archive after it airs.

This marks a turning point in broadcast media. Blogtalkradio is empowering citizens worldwide to reach a greater audience and engage a two-way conversation – live.

Frauenfelder is founder and co-editor of the Internet's most popular blog BoingBoing (www.boingboing.net) which boasts 350,000 readers each month and 1 million subscribers. Frauenfelder is also editor-in-chief of MAKE (www.makezine.com) and contributing editor to Wired.com, Madprofessor.net. He has written several books, including the recently completed “Rule the Web: How to Do Anything and Everything on the Internet - Better, Faster, Easier.” Stay tuned for Mark Frauenfelder’s own talk show on Blogtalkradio coming this coming June.
