Here’s the latest goings on with Hockey Talk Radio NEWS…
A Really AWESOME update…
Increased respect from our airtime provider, Radionomy, is bringing us more and more benefits. And this is a result of a lot of great folks — from our all-star group of podcasters to our listeners.
The latest awesome news is our ability to share a Hockey Talk Radio player on the blogs and websites of our friends. In other words, I can share the code with a reputable hockey site, and our station will play right there, at the push of a button. (I’ve done that on both CoachChic.com and my Hockey Diary, just to show how it looks and works.)
We know blog visitors will enjoy quick access to Hockey Talk Radio, but I want to do more than that. So I plan on promoting participating blogs or sites, here on this site, and to my 16,000+ social media contacts.
The techie side of this is easy-peasy: I give you the code, and you just paste it in to where you want the player to appear. That’s it! And if you have any problems, I’ll be available to help.
Two new shows are joining us soon…
I put out an appeal last week for a podcast covering the local Tampa Bay Lightening, and it only took a few days to make connections with a great guy — a Chicago native now relocated to Tampa.
I’m sure the new podcast will have a different logo than the graphic to the right, and I can tell you that the new show will be called “Bolts Report”. I kinda like that name, and I’m sure listeners — and especially Bolts fans — will love what’s planned for that show.
Maybe a little behind the Bolts Report will be a new Hockey Talk Radio show covering an entire Canadian Junior hockey league. I think it’s a great concept, and one that should be especially appreciated by the players and their families, as that show covers league action over the past week. I sense it can also be an awesome recruiting tool for all the teams in that league. More on that program soon, though.
Shaun Goodsell’s guest appearance over the past week or so has been extremely popular, and it’s sparked him to join our programming with a regular podcast. So am I attempting to get Susan Salzbrenner to expand her Fit Across Cultures show to full-time status.
Of course, I’m still looking for more shows. I’m going to put on a real push to get a show from the Boston-area, covering my favorite old team, the Bruins. I think more Junior hockey leagues ought to consider having their own weekly podcasts, and I’d really like more guys or gals who feel they can share worthy advice to young, developing hockey players, their parents and their coaches. If you get a chance, scan my page about creating your own show if you’d like a little more info.
Don’t forget to check on the latest Hockey Talk Radio “Show of the Week”…
Each week a new podcast is featured as the Hockey Talk Radio “Show of the Week“. Not only does that give listeners a chance to discover a little about one of our better podcasts, but a sample show is always included at the bottom of that page.
