Redding launches Black Talkers

Nov. 2, 2009, 2 a.m. - Black Talkers is the only Web site - located at - dedicated to covering the black talk media industry!

The site covers nearly 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.

Black Talkers current features include:

Black Talkers Industry News - A frequently updated talk media news section.

Black Talkers Radio Stations - The definitive list of black talk radio stations.

Black Talkers Talented 10 (Radio) - The definitive list of top black radio talk show hosts in the talk media industry today.

Black Talkers Talented 10 (TV) - The definitive list of top black TV talk show hosts in the talk media industry today.

Redding says that Black Talkers is already working on its Talented 10 list for next November and will be announcing personality and programming awards early next year.
