Black Talkers News  
  More than 20 percent of people who listen to talk radio are black and that tally does not include Black Talk formatted radio stations. Black Talkers Founder Robert "Rob" Redding Jr. says, "Black talkers and their listeners are the most neglected in talk radio today."
 

About Black Talkers

Launched Nov. 2, 2009, Black Talkers is the only Web site dedicated to covering the black talk media industry!

The site covers more than  30 Black Talk formatted radio stations, with its media directory; hundreds of TV and radio talk show hosts with its pair of media Talented 10 lists; and black talk media industry events with its front page section.

Black Talkers Founder Robert "Rob" Redding Jr. says he started the Web site because he realizes that more than 20 percent of people who listen to talk radio are black.

"And that tally does not include Black Talk formatted radio stations," Redding said. "Black talkers and their listeners are the most neglected in talk radio today and Black Talkers fills that need."

Redding also pointed out the most watched woman in the world is Oprah Winfrey, who also owns one of the most powerful media companies in the world.

What's more, Redding says Black Talk formatted radio has a long tradition in America's radio roots. "Black Talk dates back to the civil rights movement and Martin Luther King literally organizing his movement on the first black-owned and programmed radio station in America, WERD-AM in Atlanta," he said.
